Publication of an ARTICLE “Issues and Challenges of Overtourism in the City of Hvar”

Jasna Čapo published an article titled “Issues and Challenges of Overtourism in the City of Hvar” in the scholarly journal Etnološka tribina 56/43, 2023. The article is a part of a thematic session on urban futures.

Abstract:

Bearing in mind the term “overtourism,” the paper analyzes the perceptions of the local population about the negative impact of tourism in the specific spatial, temporal, demographic, and socio-economic context of the city of Hvar. It demonstrates that the negative effects of tourism in the city bear resemblance to those in other places exposed to overtourism, but also that the local context (size and space of the city, the monoculture of tourism and its seasonality, and the engagement of the entire population in tourism) compound the social and material effects of overtourism in the city and makes it difficult to stop its growth and influence. The analysis is based on ethnographic research and monitoring of social networks.
