Formatted abstract This thesis presents a qualitative investigation of environmental regulation in the tourism industry. Unlike previous research, which has generally been of a positivist nature, this study attempts to conceptualise the organisational response to environmental regulation using a constructivist approach. Data for this thesis was collected through interviews and documents. The evidence from the data suggested that three variables moderated the relationship between the type of environmental regulation and the organisational response to the regulation. The variables identified were: management perception of environmental regulation, management perception of regulatory agencies, and the organisation-regulator relationship. This thesis contributes to existing literature by •defining these variables and extending the current environmental regulation research to include the tourism industry.
