Понятийно-концептуальный анализ функционирования туристского сектора в условиях глобального эпидемического кризиса
The present investigation provides one of the first complex attempts to analyze new burgeoning part of theory, that illustrates changes in tourism sector daily within global epidemic crisis. Drawing from system and criterion approach we realized theoretical analyses of the conceptual space mentioned. The analyses mentioned showed preconditions of the considering theoretical space and illustrated the main features of its development within Russian and English academic discourses. Within each of the mentioned discourses we identified some dominating types of academic papers and a number of the most widespread topics. Basing on the analysis mentioned, we described two key investigation strategies “Eastern” and “Western” ones, which differ in general investigation logic that they are based on. The theoretical analysis showed that the question of tourism sector functioning within the pandemic (on the business process level) has not been deeply investigated yet. The key reason for it is the early stage of theorizing on the topic mentioned. At this stage investigations are often not systematic and are not coherent enough. To overcome theselimitation we suggested a model of empirical analysis of tourism sector within pandemic. In the future this model will form theoretical and methodological basis for creating effective tourism sector supporting systems for the cases of global epidemic crisis.
