Faculty of Business and Law Research Seminar: ‘Institutional Quality, Political Risk and Tourism: Evidence from Gravity Model’ 6th Feb 2019 13:00 to 14:00 TPod A (2nd Floor of Learning Hub)
Everyone welcome as Dr Thaana Ghalia investigates the role of institutional quality coupled with political risks, distance and socio-economic factors to explain tourist flow by applying the gravity model. We found that institutional quality and absence of conflict are driving factors in fostering tourism flows for both source and destination countries. Our finding suggests that institutional reform can help to boost the economies of countries with low- quality institutions. While institutional change is a positive development in its own right, our results suggest that it can also have important additional economic benefits for countries that are highly dependent on tourism.

I’ll be leaving UoN tomorrow. I’d like to send my best wishes to all of you – supervisors, postgraduate researchers and everyone I’ve worked with during my time here. It’s been lovely working with you all and thank you for accepting me into the fold six year’s ago. What a super team of people I have had the pleasure of working with! I will miss you.
Best of luck with your research whatever the topic, wherever you go and hope to see you when I visit. If you find yourself at Nottingham Trent University do hunt me down! Goodbye and good luck with Waterside, All the best, Simone.
