Chapter Summary

Peace tourism is a holistic, multi-dimensional phenomenon that intersects natural, social, economic, political and spiritual systems. This chapter analyzes the dynamic construct of nation through five study questions, two theoretical frameworks, and three cases demonstrating the impact of varied applications of peace tourism on quality-of-life in different regions of the world. It examines peace tourism as it exemplifies one among many social, political and economic constructs being shaped by and helping to shape both the direction of globalization and the meaning of nation for future generations. Peace tourism has evolved at a time when the world has been inundated by a deluge of information with optional or limited interpretation. Whether globalization is viewed as a force that will eventually reduce the need for "non-peace" may be the ultimate test of its maturity as an historical movement.
