Abstract/Summary There is a general consensus that tourism is a vehicle for regional development; because of this connection, combined with the possibility of market failure, there is a need for government involvement in tourism. Thus, governments have directed attention to the development of policies related to tourism. These policies may be related to tourism-specifi c events or issues, as well as the implementation of political ideology-driven metapolicy. Governments have employed a number of metapolicy frameworks, and often in the past, these were led by developments in the UK and the USA (Church et al., 2000; Hall and Jenkins, 2004; Bramwell and Lane, 2006). The fi rst of these in the 1950s was a focus on macroeconomic policy measured by GDP growth. This was superseded by a neoliberal focus on small government in the 1970s and 1980s, a call for government to ‘steer not row’ and increasing involvement of policy networks involving private and public sector stakeholders.
