Principal researcher

Jasper Heslinga

Type of research



Prof. Gert de Roo (promotor)

Dr. Constanza Parra


The Wadden region is an unique natural resource which can be an important attractor for tourism. This research will deal with issues regarding the consequences of a possible intensification and internationalization of coastal tourism in terms of the ecology, landscape and heritage of the Wadden and the prosperity, liveability and identity of the people who live in the Wadden region.

Comparative research into the robust and dynamic aspects of coastal tourism development will be conducted in the German, Danish and Dutch parts of the Wadden area and in similar areas in the world.
