Questions for Discussion

  • 1. How may social structures within a tourism community or hospitality business foster or hinder social innovation?
  • 2. How can social innovation be successfully implemented within a diverse (migrant labour, tourists, locals, etc.) tourism destination?
  • 3. Does the use of technology in social innovation contribute to more just and sustainable tourism communities or does it impede social exchange?

Frieder Voll is research fellow and lecturer at the Institute of Tourism and Leisure, University of Applied Sciences HTW Chur, Switzerland. His main research interest is sustainable development in high-mountain regions. From 2008 until 2012, Frieder Voll worked as research assistant at the Institute of Geography, University of Erlangen, Germany. For his Ph.D., he analyzed the significance of accessibility for the European Alpine Regions and highlighted that tourism can be an important factor for development in peripheral mountain regions. Although the main geographic foci are the European Alps, he transfers his research to other high-altitude mountain regions.
