Chapter 13: Tourism, peace, and global stability
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.
