Praxis of Informal Tourism Entrepreneurs

Are informal tourism entrepreneurs actually marginalised? How do informal tourism entrepreneurs contribute to changes in society?

Six in ten people globally earn their livelihoods in the informal economies. They provide essential products and services, mitigate unemployment, and complement the supply gaps in the formal sectors. However, the views of informal entrepreneurs have often been marginalised and little is known about the informal tourism economy’s characteristics; no study has ever estimated the size of the informal tourism economy.
