An analysis of the development of home exchange organisations.

  This paper contributes to a better understanding of the home exchange phenomenon by considering the historical development
of the home exchange intermediation processes, membership profiles and the role of the media. The Internet has enabled
a more interactive process and facilitated home exchange kernels which, by the way they are organised, allow a degree of
self-organisation. Processes of specialisation, differentiation and integration change the home exchange intermediation
landscape.
