Resilience, tourist destinations and governance: an analytical framework

Abstract : This chapter stimulates new and essential questions. Resilience gains in explanatory power if we skip from resilience applied to specific fields to systemic resilience. This shift puts forward the governance of a destination. A resilient destination can build and achieve resilience, which is necessary to increase inbound tourism, to ensure flexibility, transition, innovation, and to build a new trajectory for renewed attrac- tiveness or image. The resilience of a tourist destination is the ability of the stakeholders to accept shocks, which rely on planning and anti- cipation and responsiveness. It is simultaneously a decentralized pro- cess and collective response. The decentralized process offers several answers, while a collective response ensures flexibility for the develop- ment of the required capacity (Folke et al., 2005 ; Becken, 2013). In fact, a resilient-based destination is a learning destination. This point merits to be explored in more depth in future research.
