Abstract: This paper reviews and examines the various strategies adopted by local residents in response to tourism including its impacts and tourists. Doxey's (1975) 'Irridex' or Irritation Index was the first and unquestionably the most well-known set of responses. However, in subsequent years, other sets of response strategies were also developed by Dogan (1989) and Ap and Crompton (1993) who examined residents' strategies in dealing with tourism in the international and domestic context, respectively. While each of the respective sets of strategies has their own merits and limitations, none are comprehensive in their own right. Upon closer examination it is noted that some strategies overlap, but they also complement one another. The purpose of this paper is to re-examine and re-conceptualise how residents' react to tourism with a view to developing a comprehensive typology of residents' response strategies, and to also generate some comments and academic debate on this topic.
