This Ph.D research study is based on the phenomenon of homestay development – such a local accommodation – which becomes a popular and success program in many countries particularly in developing country as it owns its capacity to promote local economic while simultaneously assuring the preservation of natural resources and cultural sustainability in rural areas (Bhuiyan et al., 2013; Yasami et al., 2017). We propose here to examine the ability of homestay in Bali to favour sustainable tourism while respecting each village’s identity by analysing the contribution of homestay to the economic, socio, cultural, and environmental sustainability in the villages which are also tourist destinations. In this research setting, two tourist destinations are purposively selected as case studies, namely Ubud in the Central of Bali and Blimbingsari in the West of Bali. Bali as the main tourist destination in Indonesia has been practicing homestay as local accommodation since 1925. The research outcomes are expected to provide an understanding concerning the adoption of western paradigm regarding the concept of sustainable tourism into non-western society, which still requires an appreciation of its local identity. This study is based on two months observation in Bali (Ubud and Blimbingsari). 40 depth-interviews were carried out. In this research seminar, we will first define the homestay concept in Bali through a literature review and empirical data, which constitute the basic principal of Balinese homestay and its value for the local community. Then we will review the details of the empirical results, to understand the ability of homestay in Bali to favour sustainable tourism while respecting each village’s identity by analysing the contribution of homestay to the economic, socio, cultural, and environmental sustainability in villages.
Et Phenomenon of Running in Bali: Between Social Change and Local Development.
Avec Sukma Winarya, doctorant, laboratoire ESO (UMR 6590), Assistant Professor à Bali Tourism Polytechnic.
Sport has always been an important part of human life, perhaps from prehistoric times to the present. Researchers used a variety of terms to describe physical exercise, such as play and games, until sport finally became a standard definition in the modern world. Since their invention, these physical exercises have evolved. Its purpose, meaning, and values are expanding. Perhaps begun with survival actions, cultural expressions, community entertainment, political movement, development tools, and so on. In this research, we attempt to investigate the development of running in Bali by conducting an empirical study of the phenomenon of running as a sport of choice for modern Balinese society. Many scholars have discussed various issues in the study of running-related sports, such as capturing the dynamics of social change and its metamorphosis as a sport tourism. The primary aim of this research is to find out why running sports develop in Bali? and what impact does running have on local development? In this research seminar, we will divide the analysis into several sections in order to address the research problems;1) identifying the changing values of sport in Balinese community; 2) understanding the interest of Indonesian authorities toward sport tourism; 3) investigating how the community’s and the place’s characteristics influence the development of running in Bali; 4) uncovering the new dimension of running motivation in Bali; 5) analysing the role, motives, and interactions of the key players in Bali’s organization of a running event; 6) assessing how running events in Bali might affect certain aspects sustainable development in local area; 7) exploring the disruptive effects caused by Covid-19 on the running phenomenon in Bali.
