Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to examine the socio-cultural impacts that tourists and locals in Mallorca are experiencing. We want to study the locals’ and tourists' perceptions and impact they have on each other. Qualitative interviews have been conducted for this thesis, in which two different interview forms were used. One interview form was used to interview locals and another for tourists, and a total of 11 people were interviewed. The study is based on theories that includes socio-cultural impacts, cultural shock, Doxey's irridex model and codes of conduct.

The result of this study is that both locals and tourists had in general positive perceptions of the socio-cultural effects. The positive effects they experienced was cultural- and knowledge exchange, create networks with tourists from around the world and to have multicultural meetings. It was only locals who felt the negative socio-cultural effects of tourism, and these effects were that tourists litter the streets, drinks a lot of alcohol, creates high noise levels and that tourism affects the traditions and local language.

Resultatet av studien är att både lokalborna och turisterna i generella drag har positivauppfattningar av turismens effekter på ön. De positiva effekter som de upplevde var kulturochkunskapsutbyten, turismen underlättade att skapa ett nätverk med personer från helavärlden samt en upplevelse av mångkulturella möten. Det är endast lokalborna som anser attdet finns negativa effekter av turismen, vilket var att turister skräpar ner gator,överkonsumerar alkohol, är väldigt högljudda samt påverkar traditioner och det lokala språket.
