The NOUTUR - New perspectives in tourism and leisure group brings a dynamic, experimental and contemporary approach to the analysis of tourism and leisure as phenomena with real impacts and trajectories, combining social science theory with empirical research, aimed particularly at offering useful answers.
Its starting point is a multidisciplinary approach to tourism and leisure as change agents. Research methods are applied to empirically challenge contemporary myths about tourism and leisure in key specific areas and on different scales.
The group takes into account the need for an open, cross-cutting, inclusive vision of the transformations that are taking place in destinations, organizations and the forms of tourism consumption, considering two main driving forces: the ICTs and sustainability. In its work, it expands the theoretical and methodological frameworks of reference that have been used until now in this field, bringing to bear emergent epistemological perspectives.
