Abstract: This paper proposes a method for diagnosing the impacts of second-home tourism and illustrates it for a Mediterranean Spanish destination. This method proposes the application of network analysis software to the analysis of causal maps in order to create a causal network model based on stakeholder-identified impacts. The main innovation is the analysis of indirect relations in causal maps for the identification of the most influential nodes in the model. The results show that the most influential nodes are of a political nature, which contradicts previous diagnoses identifying technical planning as the ultimate cause of problems.
Sponsor: The project described in this paper was funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Education under the title Residential tourism: analysis of demand and proposals for restructuring consolidated destinations (SEJ/2005/04305).
