Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

Abstract

An ambitions strategic plan for tourism development various regions in Egypt is currently implemented. Without adequate concern for environmental protection this development could cause ecological threats. Introducing eco-tourism and the underlying support infrastructure and facilities has harvested many benefits in countries that have unique cultural and natural resources. A number of research studies and survey efforts have been undertaken during the period between 1996 and 1999 with the aim to instigate parameters for encouraging eco-tourism development and the necessary control mechanisms. These efforts have resulted in three reports which were presented in various seminars and were disseminated to local authorities, developers, architects, and planners, toward informed decisions: 1. Eco-Tourism and the Egyptian Context 2. Eco-Friendly Lodges in Egyptian Settings 3. Requirements for Eco-Lodge Design in Egypt
