Past and current world events remind use of ongoing need to establish peace. Tourism not only flourishes in peaceful environments but may also contribute to the achievement of peace and transformation in the life of the individual, the community, the nation, and international relations. However, to be develop tourism as a means for promoting understanding and peace, there is a need to define how individual and community perceptions influence the “worldview” of peace through tourism. This paper discusses relationships of tourism development to the peace process. A conceptual model for understanding community tourism and peace is presented for consideration. Suggestions are made for the use of the model in tertiary education for tourism professionals. © 2008 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
