1. Gale, Trace. Finding meaning in sustainability and a livelihood based on tourism.

Degree: 2006, West Virginia University

Development. Livelihood. Sustainability. Tourism. The post-positivistic approach of this study helped to illuminate the complexity that underscores these four simple words. It helped to fill knowledge gaps through exploration of the lived experience of tourism-based livelihoods within the Aysיn region of southern Chile. With an understanding of this lived experience, the identification of more feasible and meaningful development interventions and policies becomes more likely. Results were organized around seven key areas of focus: (1) shaping factors for tourism-based livelihoods, (2) how tourism-based livelihood strategies added meaning, (3) the role that alternative forms of tourism played, (4) tourism livelihood tactics, (5) participant definitions of success, (6) success factors, and (7) vulnerability. This study contributed to emerging theory in a variety of areas including development geography, development theory, tourism development theory, and rural livelihoods studies. It supported the need for better theoretical integration between development and tourism science, by demonstrating the potential for integration of livelihoods approaches to inform tourism research and practice, in a meaningful manner. Based on the findings of this research and a reintegration of relevant literature, a Sustainable Tourism Based Livelihood Framework (STBLF) was presented which can assist researchers and practitioners with future exploration. Additional implications of this research included the potential for tourism to be an exchange agent for social learning; tourism as a catalyst for transboundary amenity migration, and tourism livelihoods as vehicles of transferable human capacity. These areas warranted additional exploration. This study will interest individuals, communities, government agencies, NGOs, and specific projects with an interest in the potential of tourism to be a tool for livelihood sustainability and development within the Aysיn region of Chile. Results of this study are not generalizable. The ability to transfer implications of this study beyond the sixteen cases of interest will depend on similarity of context and fit between cases in question.

2. Tamborini, Christopher Ryan. The 'reinvented' state in emerging industries: a comparison of tourism in Peru and Chile.

Degree: Sociology, 2005, University of Texas – Austin

This dissertation contributes to the literature on the state, institutions and development in developing economies. Drawing from institutional and developmental state perspectives, I examine the way in which the state and its institutional character shape an important non-traditional growth sector across the Latin American continent in the contemporary period - tourism. The cases of Peru and Chile, where tourism has only become a particularly relevant economic activity since the 1990s, provide a comparative lens to explore how the state in conjunction with societal actors go about building new markets and local capacities in an emerging, but highly competitive, non-traditional niche in the global market. My empirical analysis assesses the two case-studies along four dimensions: (1) the evolution of Peruvian and Chilean tourism and state involvement therein from the 1970s-present; (2) the extent to which the state shapes the natural/cultural-historic resources important to each country’s tourism industry; (3) the role of sub-national government in tourism development, with focus on the regions of Cusco, Peru and Los Lagos, Chile; and (4) the influence of the organized private sector, and its relation with the state, on the productive potential of an emerging tourism sector. My methodological strategy combines various sources of qualitative and quantitative data derived from one year of fieldwork in Peru and Chile, principally (a) over 70 in-depth interviews with public and private sector tourism leaders and; (b) secondary sources, which include historical and current government documents and policy reports. The main findings of this dissertation show the complex and changing ways in which the state and particular elements of its institutional system matter in the mobilization of an emerging industry in the context of increasing globalization. Instead of prompting the demise of the state, the unfolding of neoliberal globalization in Peru and Chile has made state action (central and sub-national) more necessary as the private sector and civil society have struggled to seize new development opportunities such as tourism. How each state has responded to favorable tourism market trends, however, depends on a range of institutional factors (e.g. state-society relations, decentralization), which continue to shape national and local development processes in the context of accelerated globalization. Advisors/Committee Members: Roberts, Bryan R. (advisor), Ward, Peter (advisor).

3. true. Gestión turística del patrimonio y etnogénesis en el territorio atacameño .

Degree: 2014, TDX

En esta tesis de doctorado estudié cómo las comunidades indígenas atacameñas que habitan en el desierto de Atacama, en el norte de Chile, están administrando y gestionando los bienes patrimoniales dentro de sus territorios. Para esto me he centrado en dos aspectos; por una parte he analizado el valor económico y el uso turístico que hacen de los recursos patrimoniales. Paralelamente se han estudiado los impactos que ello está teniendo en el proceso de etnogénesis atacameña. Planteo que el turismo está teniendo un rol performativo de la cultura atacameña, que ha implicado la reincorporación y reinvención de elementos culturales que estaban en desuso. Para desarrollar esta investigación he utilizados una metodología cualitativa, utilizando técnicas etnográficas. Para ello se llevaron a cabo dos temporadas de trabajo de campo, en las que se han realizado entrevistas semiestructuradas y abiertas con informantes claves, observación participativa en distintos proyectos de turismo comunitario desarrollados por comunidades atacameñas, tanto en el salar de Atacama como en el territorio del Alto Loa.; In this doctoral research I studied how the atacameños indegenous communities, in the Atacama desert (northern Chile), are managing the cultural heritage whitin their territories. I focuse on two central aspects, in one hand the economic value and the touristic uses of these heritage resources. Also I explain the impacts it's having the use of cultural heritage with touristic purposes in the atacameños ethnogenesis process. I argue that tourism is having a performative role in atacameños culture, which involved the reincorporation and reinvention of cultural elements that were unused. In this research it used a qualitative methodology which involved two seasons of fieldwork in which they have conducted semi-structured and open interviews with key informants. Also it performed participative observation in four communities who are developed tourism projects both in the Salar Atacama and in the territory of Alto Loa.
