D2.3 Summary Report of impact evaluations of cultural tourism on target areas

Wallace Claire; Shaddock John

One of the SPOT project tasks was to collect comparative information on several themes. These themes are not directly part of the quantitative data collection but are a requirement for project reporting. We collected comparative data across the different case studies to put together into a summary report. Given the nature of these data, we decided to collect them as “expert” assessments from teams. The topics included: economic development and growth; impact on jobs; the impact of cultural tourism for de-industrialised areas, for peripheral areas, for cross-borders issues; how cultural tourism could promote tourist flows and how over-tourism could be managed. Finally, we included a section on the impact of COVID-19 on tourism. Each country is referred to by the international notation, but we should note that data was collected about case studies within countries, rather than the country as a whole. For this reason we have included a table below indicating how country notation is used and to which case study it refers.
