Abstract

This paper studies the influence of political conflict and terrorism on Turkey’s tourism indicators and competitiveness. Turkey has been challenged by political conflict, and several associated terrorist attacks in recent years. Consequently, the risks involved in visiting one the world’s top tourism destinations, Turkey, have increased. Crisis has challenged the country’s competitiveness and share in world tourism as a top tourist destination. Studies on the effects of this on tourism have shown that conflict has a significant, negative impact on a region’s tourism industry. The aim of this article is to analyze the effects of the crisis in Turkey on its tourism development. The study provides a descriptive analysis of the economic and tourism indicators of Turkey over the period from 2002 to 2015. The terrorism index was used to test its relationship with the changes in other economic and tourism indicators. The results show that there is the strong relationship between the changes in the terrorism index and overall tourism growth rates. Political conflict and terrorism have an adverse effect on Turkish tourism development.
