Tourism, progress and peace.

Book cover for Tourism, progress and peace.


The objectives of this book are threefold: (i) to identify and learn from examples of a positive relationship between tourism and peace; (ii) to make available the output of and to stimulate further academic research and scholarship focused on the tourism and peace proposition; and (iii) to move on from the original question of whether tourism contributes to peace, to finding ways in which tourism can be managed and conducted to meet the peace objective. The conceptual and theoretical foundations are laid in chapters 1-3. The tourism encounter theme is taken up in chapters 4-8. Chapters 9-15 extend the discussion into the area of conflict resolution.
