This study clearly demonstrates that a close connection has been observed in many parts of the world between various forms of peace through tourism and tourism through peace. “The relationship between tourism and peace” issue as was found in the literature concentrates mainly on with the socio-psychological attitudes towards tourism, although economic studies measuring the impact of peace on tourism are relatively few. Moreover, while it may be overstating reality to argue that tourism is necessarily a force for peace, it may be that this particular type of tourism is a precursor to and a positive influence on the improvement of diplomatic relations between divided nations, and may ultimately lead to the establishment of more conventional tourism between these units as their relations improve.

Keywords : Peace and tourism, tourism and peace, political boundaries, peace promoter.
