“…The sparse research on Airbnb and crime are mainly sustained on the literature on tourism and crime, which generally showing that the increase in tourism leads to a rise in crime in the area (Fuji and Mak 1980;Mawby 2010;Montolio and Planells-Struse 2016;Recher and Rubil 2020). The relationship can be mainly explained based on the routine activities theory (Cohen and Felson 1979) This theory postulates that crime is an event which happens when three elements converge in space and time: a motivated criminal, an adequate objective, and the absence of a guardian capable of stopping the crime with his vigilance.…”

“…Based on the routine activity theory, the mainstream viewpoint from a micro perspective suggests that crime—as a negative externality of tourism—is the joint result of three basic elements: suitable targets, motivated offenders, and the absence of capable guardians against a violation (Adam & Adongo, 2016; Biagi et al, 2012; Mehmood et al, 2016). Many scholars find that an increasing number of tourist arrivals can lead to an increase in crime (Fujii & Mak, 1979; Montolio & Planells-Struse, 2016; Recher & Rubil, 2020). However, our findings are different from those of previous studies.…”

“…The results showed that tourist arrivals positively affected the crime rate only in the short run, affirming the opportunity structural perspectives. Recher and Rubil (2020) examined the effect of tourism on crime in Croatia by estimating the elasticity of property crime with respect to tourist arrivals during 2006 to 2016, showing that a moderately paced growth in tourism can result in a sizeable increase in property crime.…”

“…Although crime seasonality has been studied in the scientifi c literature since the mid-19th century, the relationship between crime seasonality and tourism has been rarely addressed. Crime seasonality issue and tourism-related crime are in general scarcely analysed in Croatian literature (notable exception is Recher & Rubil, 2020), so this paper represent additional eff ort in addressing of these issues.…”
