Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Gambia is a nation that for the last forty years has been considerably dependent of its tourism and the revenues it brings. Gambia, a nation with the population of 1,5 million inhabitants, is annually visited by approximately 100 000 tourists. This must be considered a fairly successful rate of visitors for a tourist destination. There are aspects of the Gambian tourism that is less successful though. The majority of the population is very poor and has few possibilities to find ways to change their situation. Our initial interest was based in this fact and a wonder of how the poor inhabitants of Gambia are able to earn money from the visiting tourist and how this ability can be improved.
