Abstract

This chapter makes a case for the examination of tourism employment in a Nordic context. It briefly outlines the policy relevance of tourism employment before describing how Nordic countries share labour market characteristics and policy contexts, while also drawing attention to differences. Brief reviews of tourism and tourism employment relating to the five Nordic countries are offered before the structure of the book is outlined.
