Sammanfattning

Tourist attractions emerge in stakeholder negotiation processes, where a critical issue is how different notions of meaning and value are argued and expressed. This article investigates this process of meaning production in practice through four examples of tourist attraction developments in Southern Sweden. Instances where tourist attractiveness is defined by stakeholders are analyzed by showing how this attractiveness is framed as expressions of locality. The analysis adopts a social constructivist perspective on meaning production. It is concluded that critical reflection of how places become attractive in practice is needed to make sense of the dynamics between the generic and the particular in tourism analysis and management.
