Handbook of Globalisation and Tourism

Edited by Dallen J. Timothy

Globalization entails the world becoming a smaller place through political, socio-cultural and economic processes. These processes have salient implications for tourism, and tourism itself is one of the driving forces behind globalization. This book is a collection of conceptual treatises by international scholars about the dynamics and reach of globalization and its relationships with tourism. It anatomizes and deconstructs the global forces, processes and challenges that face the world of tourism. It is international in scope, encyclopedic in its conceptual depth, empirically evocative, and contemporary in its coverage.

Chapter 13: Tourism, peace, and global stability

Alon Gelbman


This chapter reviews recent and current thinking about the role of tourism in peace making. It highlights some of the factors and variables that affect more peaceful relations between countries, particularly the countries of tourists’ origins and their destinations. The chapter uses the conceptual framework of benevolent relations through interpersonal contact, sport tourism as a medium of peace-building, border heritage-based tourism as symbolic of a transformation from conflict to peace and tourism in peace parks. Each one of these actions and types of tourism has unique characteristics that create an increased potential for developing between relationships between countries and peoples.
