Rätten att resa : en självklarhet för vissa och en omöjlighet för andra

Lomäng Gunnars, Maria, Nilsson, Elin January 2010 (has links)
<p>In the West, travels are often regarded as a given. When tourism is studied it sometimes sounds as if all people have the opportunity to go on vacation when they want and wherever they want. That is not the reality for all. There are laws and regulations on visa requirement which makes it harder for nationals of certain countries to travel on holiday abroad. This essay examines the situation for residents of countries outside the EU and the Schengen Agreement. Sweden and Morocco are the countries that have been used as examples of EU member country and non EU country. Theories of globalization, why people travel, the government's role in tourism, migration, and the problems and solutions concerning tourism in the Third World has been studied to gain a deeper insight into the aspects that may play a role in how, in this case, Moroccans travel and what they think about travels. The empirical data is, among other things, gathered through interviews with embassies, immigration office and Moroccans living in Morocco and Sweden. The results were presented showing that the situation is complicated because many different factors come into play. From the political perspective, it may seem risky to allow the growth of tourism in the Schengenarea from countries with visa requirements. This is because their inhabitants are considered to be more likely to remain as illegal immigrants. At the same time there is a willingness of Moroccans to travel and see the world that should be taken into consideration. Why should travel be a privilege only for nationals of certain countries?</p>

Medicinsk turism : En studie av medicinsk turismutveckling

Donnström, Lena, Hifawi, Aya January 2013 (has links)
Idag reser människor till allt fler länder för att utföra operationer. Tack vare Internet kan man idag hitta billiga flygresor och information om vad som är bra och mindre bra. Medicinsk turism handlar bland annat om situationer när en patient reser från en plats till en annan plats, ofta belägna i olika länder, för att utföra en medicinsk behandling. Denna behandling kan innehålla bland annat tandvård, fertilitetsbehandling (ofrivillig barnlöshet) och kosmetisk kirurgi. Medicinsk turism har ökat med åren genom att fler och fler resebyråer har specialiserat sig inom medicinsk turism. Inte för länge sen godkändas ett certifikat av World tourism organisation i FN. Dem medger att branschen växer 20 procent Per år. Totalt omsätter branschen ca 270 - 405 miljarder kronor. Enligt Tysklands nationella turistorganisation har ca 77000 turister vårdas i Tyskland år 2010. Kunderna kommer främst från andra delar av världen som te x Ryssland, USA och Gulf staterna. Syftet med resan är att vården är billigare, kortare köer eller att man inte kan utföra en speciell operation i hemlandet. Thailand och Spanien är några populära turistmål som är kända för sina behandlingar och dess trovärdiga kliniker. Thailand är ett av världens populäraste destination inom skönhetsbehandlingar. Ca 600 000 turister åker varje år till Thailand för att utföra operationer, skönhetsoperationer och sjukhusvistelser.

Dagens hotellbransch : En studie som belyser hur hotell i Stockholm arbetar för att behålla sina gäster

Al-badrawi, Rasha, Pavlovic, Anna, Ganeva, Kremena January 2014 (has links)
Because of the large supply of information is today's leisure travelers very enlightened and have firsthand knowledge of what can be demanded on a hotel stay. Along with business travelers, who are not price sensitive, they place higher demands on the standards and service they require. It has become increasingly important to attract the visitors in a unique way. The purpose of this study is to reveal those aspects which hotels focus on in their business in order to keep their guests, despite the strong competition and the new demands of the changing hotel industry. The study has examined more closely if the hotels have specific concepts in their approach, if their servicescapes (the environment where the service is assembled) are designed in a unique way to attract visitors and if the hotels have special relationships with their guests. The study is qualitative and in order to answer the purpose has observations of the selected hotels and interviews with managers and receptionists been made. One of the conclusions that we reached is that the most important aspect in the hotels business is their relationship to the guests. Each respective hotel strives to have a special and unique relationship with its guests conveyed by its staff. But even if the hotels have the same purpose, they use different ways to create a unique relationship to their guests. As for concept, we have concluded that none of the hotels work with thematisation, but that they instead use various concepts to make their guests' experiences more positive. The servicescapes are valued not quite high by the hotels, however, they are designed in different ways that convey certain emotions.
