Thesis Title:

Uncommon Potential? Tourism and Community Sustainability in Burin, NL.

Research Description:

Rural coastal communities are facing many challenges associated with
restructuring, including the transition from traditional fisheries-based
economies to more diverse economic development. The tourism industry in
Newfoundland and Labrador is largely focused on the environment and culture of rural communities, and tourism development has been promoted as an opportunity to advance sustainable community development. My research will examine the potential linkages between tourism and community sustainability.

Research Interests:

  • Sustainable Community Development
  • Interactive Governance of Coastal Resources
  • Eco-Cultural Tourism
