Abstract

Prior to the 2020 Corona virus pandemic (COVID-19), the harassment of visitors by local micro-traders was of significant concern to tourism leaders around the world, and this was occurring while many of the factors fuelling such behaviours remain unknown. The goal of the present discourse was to introduce two criminological theories that may result in the discovery of drivers not yet examined through empirical research. In fact, the authors suggested that in addition to other factors the phenomenon may also be due to micro-traders experiencing low levels of self-control and negative strain, factors that could heighten post COVID-19
