Abstract

This paper examines both positivist and constructivist approaches to vandalism prevention in tourism. It proposes a framework, consistent with the constructivist paradigm, for reducing tourism-linked vandalism. The Prevention-Restoration-Education-Participation framework suggests designing and applying interventions that can be enabled through coordinated and integrated multi-stakeholder efforts. The paper helps uncover and expand knowledge about the participation of the local community and other stakeholders in vandalism management. In addition, exploring tourism-linked vandalism control through these constructivist approaches suggests that the community and visitors can drive the damage control process. The synergistic effects of coordinated intervention are crucial to address the complex problems inherent in vandalism.
