Keywords: sustainable tourism rural development transnational cultural routes pilgrimage trails sustainability monitoring community based tourism

I have specialized in the role of sustainable tourism indicators as policy-making tools at destination level.

Currently, as part of my PhD course, my main research focus is on transnational cultural routes and pilgrimage trails as instruments for local development. I am particularly interested in researching cultural routes as multi-actor networks, with multi-temporal (short term and long term) and multi-scale (local, regional, national and transnational) dimensions, but rooted in stable local systems.

The theoretical framework I will use to analyse them are policy network theory and local territorial systems (Slot) to explain the network dynamics and their influence in policy making at local, regional and transnational level.
