SPECIAL ISSUE ON “TOURISM, HOSPITALITY AND LEISURE IN A GLOBALIZED WORLD

 

 Guest Editors: Ruth Rios-Morales, Ian Jenkins & Alain Imboden of Les Roches-Gruyère, University of Applied Sciences, Switzerland and Glion Institute of Higher Education.

In the era of globalization, the economic contribution of the tourism, hospitality and leisure industry to the world’s GDP is significant. Tourism represents one of the main sources of income for many countries; tourism creates jobs, enhances exports and contributes to the economic welfare of the host country. Although the contribution of tourism, hospitality and the leisure industry in the era of globalization has been broadly recognized, there are also numerous challenges facing the industry. The Journal of Higher Learning Research Communications is calling for papers for a special issue to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Glion Institute of Higher Education. This special issue seeks papers that will contribute to the understanding of recent developments in this industry as well as strengths and weaknesses, threats and opportunities for the tourism, hospitality and leisure industry in the globalized world.
