Tourism, as a displacement “phenomenon”, fully participates in the global circulation of people, concepts, objects, imaginaries, experiences, norms and models. Indeed, far from being an ancillary socio-economic sector, tourism is a major vector of mobility and circulation. The World Tourism Organization announced for the first time in 2013 to have exceeded the symbolic bar of one billion international tourist arrivals. Tourism is therefore an object of (global) circulation particularly capable of making us reflect both on the formation of territorialities and subjectivities. We apprehend it as a total social fact and not as a space-time disconnected from the everyday life of individuals (Coëffé et al., 2007). It is part of socio-economic processes and brings into play relations that need to be analysed and understood, at all different scales – from the individual, to the local to the global. The 5th edition of the International Meeting of Young Researchers in Tourism Chair UNESCO “Culture, Tourism, Development” aims to put into perspective the notion of “tourism circulations” and to explore its multi-faceted and multi-level implications. It thus welcomes research papers that can shed light on the development of new imaginaries of people, places and destinations, increasingly produced and consumed by diverse populations around the globe (Axis 1: Tourism and Circulation of Images and Imaginary), to the (re-)invention of tourist objects (Axis 2: Circulation of Tourist Objects: Between Tradition and Invention) as well as to the “diffusion” of urban models, increasingly replicated across different tourist destinations (Axis 3 Circulation of Urban Models: Some Examples of Development of Tourist Sites). Another important axis is related to the development of new digital media has definitely expanded the modalities and scope of tourism circulations: it is thus crucial to understand if and how researchers are addressing the challenges and opportunities offered by our ‘digital traces' both to re-shape and better track and appreciate tourism practices (Axis 4: Tourism, Traffic and 'Digital Traces': The Potential and Challenges of Digital Media to Re-Shape and Study Tourism Experiences). Last but not least, tourism internationalisation also implies the global circulation of laws and standards and this is why we also call for research papers that examine the (increasingly) international dimension of heritage laws as well as of the corollary notions of intellectual property rights (Axis 5: Tourism, Circulation and Impacts on UNESCO World Heritage Sites and Regulations and Axis 6: Tourism circulations vis-à-vis Intellectual Property rights and culture-related revenues Issues).
