behavior of Muslim women, who must carefully cover themselves in public.
Tourists in these countries often disregard or are unaware of these standards,

kind of behavior can be an incentive for locals not to respect their own
traditions and religion anymore, leading to tensions within the local
community. The same types of culture clashes happen in conservative
Christian communities in Polynesia, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.
Question: Using the contact hypothesis, describe the potential outcomes of the
