Abstract [en]

The complex issues of conservation, politics, tourism development and governance have emerged as critical issues within sustainable tourism at World Heritage sites. This study analyzes divergent perspectives of multiple stakeholders toward sustainable tourism development in Masouleh, a tentatively listed UNESCO World Heritage location in northern Iran. The study uses a grounded theory approach for framing the case study and provides insights into understanding the obstacles of sustainable tourism in Masouleh in the context of the socioeconomic, political, and environmental dimensions of development. Drawing on in-depth interviews with key stakeholders, findings revealed that the village of Masouleh confronts numerous challenges that have implications for any listing as World Heritage. The study is significant because of the focus on a tentatively listed site, as well as acknowledging domestic opposition to heritage tourism despite the site's potential international significance.
