TiMS – The role of tourism in multicultural societies

Research project

Short description

TiMS’ overarching objective is to explore the role of tourism in multicultural societies, in Sweden and beyond, as well as to act for the inclusion and representation of diversity in tourism development and place branding.
TiMS adopts a multidisciplinary and innovative approach to tourism studies, with researchers from the fields of marketing, migration studies, design and interaction design, and a focus on concepts like inclusion and participation, integration, migration and multiculturalism.
TiMS embraces a broad conceptualisation of sustainability that includes social, cultural, economic, political and environmental perspectives. We focus on all perspectives, yet especially social sustainability. The project enables actual practical and societal change through action-oriented research and collaboration between research and practice.
