BRAS, Maria  e  RODRIGUES, Victor. Tourism and Crime: Effects of criminality on the tourist demand. Encontros Científicos [online]. 2010, n.6, pp.59-68. ISSN 1646-2408.

The main purpose of this paper is to study the relationship between tourist demand and criminality. This relationship is suggested by the review of literature, which points towards a consistent proximity between both. Mainly from a theoretical, psychological and sociological point of view, the review of the literature allows for a wider understanding of issues that relate to tourists’ victimization, which are the basis for causes and consequences of crime in tourist destinations. The theoretical understanding of this phenomenon lead to the construction of a questionnaire, which is to be applied to national and international tourists that have been victims of a crime and who reported it at an Algarve Police Station. This study will be conducted by the University of the Algarve (School of Management, Hospitality and Tourism) and by the regional section of the Police Force in Faro, during a six month period. The results will enable a further, more objective analysis of the relation between tourism and crime, and a comparison with the results from other tourist destinations.
