1. Zaib, Anwar. Tax-free shopping in Kajaani by Russian tourists .

Degree: 2013, Theseus

The inter-relationship between shopping and tourism has resulted in the rising number of travellers and the increasing amount of shops and sales. Those who are involved in the aspects of conception, development and management of the retail shops should understand the concepts of shopping tourism and tourist consumption behavior. The purpose of this thesis is to find out how to increase tax-free shopping in Kajaani targeting Russian tourists and to investigate the factors that affect tax-free shopping in Kajaani. The theoretical section of this thesis concentrates on tax-free shopping, shopping tourism, and consumer buying behavior. At the beginning of the theory, elements of tax-free shopping are first discussed and then, importance of shopping tourism and consumer buying behavior are described. All the data used in the theoretical section is collected from literature and previous researches. The research was accomplished using a quantitative research approach by conducting a structured questionnaire among the Russian tax-free shoppers. The questionnaire was based on multiple-choice questions to study shopping behavior of Russian travelers and to determine the major factors influencing tax-free shopping. The survey was distributed among the Russian respondents in a period of one week. In conclusion, the research revealed that Russian travelers are satisfied with the products’ quality, variety, and customer services offered in retail stores in Kajaani. However, language barriers, prices, and product information in Russian are the factors that affect tax-free shopping in Kajaani and require immediate attention from the companies that provide tax-free services. In order to increase tax-free sales in Kajaani, it is recommended that appropriate marketing strategies and additional free services should be provided.

2. Khalili, Sanaz. A Temporal Social Resilience Framework of Communities to Disasters in Australia and Social Network Enabled Social Resilience .

Degree: 2017, University of Sydney

The frequency and impact of disasters is on an upward trajectory and, given considerations of climate change and population growth, is projected to continue to increase. There is therefore an imminent need to advance research on factors of disaster resilience and recovery in order to reduce the impacts of these future extreme events on society. This research focuses on identifying social resilience indicators and providing a novel framework for quantifying social resilience with the aim of enhancing the ability of communities to withstand disaster. Although there has been considerable research interest in various aspects of community resilience to disasters, there have been no studies to the author’s knowledge that have gathered all social resilience indicators and constructed a unified holistic framework to cover the three phases of the disaster management cycle (i.e., pre-disaster, response and recovery). Similarly, there have not been any studies that have used social network analysis to explore the impact of the role of social network positionality and structure on social resilience. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to (i) identify the most essential social resilience indicators within communities from previous similar studies in all phases of disaster, (ii) assess these indicators against different case studies, through interviews with subject matter experts within the New South Wales State Emergency Service, then (iii) provide a unified and novel model for social resilience through the addition of (iv) data collected through an online survey within the SES volunteers from which the author (v) propose a framework for the effect of social networks on social resilience. To this effect, the author conducted two phases of research, the first relying on literature review and in-depth interviews and the second relying an online survey for data collection. The results of these were then used to propose the addition of social network analysis. The study seeks not only to advance the state of knowledge on social resilience to disaster, but also to produce actionable knowledge that can improve community preparation for and response to disaster.
