Abstract Share this page

The paper analyse causes for security and safety crises with direct or indirect impact on tourist industry. Using descriptive and causal-no-experimental research methods we analyse the risks on journeys, but also the basis and consequences of the security crisis in the tourism industry. We used the internet to collect data in the analysis of case studies of the different causes of crises. The causes and consequences of the crises in the tourist industry are generically being repeated and have ever increasing global consequences for the tourist industry at the international level. Aside from the financial and economic elements, security issues are an ever increasing cause for the co-dependency of tourism in the international, global environment. The generality of the causes and consequences of the crises is the condition to predict the probability and causality of specific risks at specific tourist destinations based on the analyses of security situations. The cumulative value of probability and causality represents the threat level upon which we can determine curative, and preventive measures to prevent or decrease the consequences of the crisis. Based on these findings a refined structure of the generic causes for the crises in the tourist sector has been designed and interpreted.
