Representation of transport. A Rural Destination Analysis

Authors: Dickinson, J.E., Robbins, D. and Fletcher, J.

Journal: Annals of Tourism Research

Volume: 36

Abstract:

Moscovici's social representations perspective is applied to a study of transport in a rural destination. The principles are demonstrated using empirical data from a questionnaire survey, developed following in-depth qualitative research. The data analysis strategy was founded on inductive reasoning, by employing cluster analysis and correspondence analysis. A social representations analysis demonstrates how individuals draw on socially accepted explanations of transport where they have little or no direct knowledge or experience of the actual transport modes (notably the alternatives to the car). By so doing, ideas are further perpetuated. Importantly there is ambiguity surrounding responsibility to take positive action yet a key to addressing transport issues is acknowledgement of responsibility. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd.
