Actors, discourses and interfaces of rural tourism development at the local community level in Slovenia: social and political dimensions of the rural tourism development process



Actors, discourses and interfaces of rural tourism development at the local community level in Slovenia: social and political dimensions of the rural tourism development process



Journal of Sustainable Tourism 8(6): 479-490



This paper addresses the policy and politics of the development of rural tourism at the local level in Slovenia and links it to the issue of sustainability. Since gaining its independence in 1991 the government has been formulating policies for the development of tourism and rural development. Using an actor perspective, this paper focuses on the different local social actors who are trying to 'transform' rural tourism development to fit their perceptions, needs, values and agendas.
