Utilizing the social exchange theory, the study identifies four types of residents based on their “perceptions” and “involvement in the tourism industry” and concludes that resident support of the ECoC initiative is impaired by the governance structure in place in the awarded city as well as factors emanating from the socio-political environment.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/13512||ISSN:||10992340||DOI:||10.1002/jtr.2257||Rights:||© 2018 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.||Type:||Article|
