Crime and International Tourism
AbstractUsing a panel data set of European countries, this paper investigates the impact of crime on international tourism. Violent crimes are negatively associated with incom- ing international tourists and international tourism revenue indicating that tourists consider the risk of victimization when choosing locations to visit. This impact is smaller in magnitude in Southern European countries which are generally more attrac- tive tourist destinations suggesting that victimization risk and attractiveness of the destination may be substitutable traits.
