Reason for embargo
The interconnected nature of tourism suggests it can offer alternative solutions and perspectives to a variety of situations which have hitherto been unexplored. This research reviews the extant literature pertinent to community tourism to explore potential gaps present, with a particular focus on the suggested impact upon expatriates. A number of gaps are uncovered, from both a tourism and expatriate perspective, including demographic discrepancies, lack of geographical representation, and the lack of temporal consideration, among others. These gaps offer future areas of analysis that can provide more insight into the possible role of tourism in improving expatriate adjustment, as well as areas of future community tourism analysis. Of specific note, the expatriate community has been by-and-large excluded from much of the analysis on perceptions of tourism, which holds significance given the increasing prominence of expatriates globally.
