      Aims and scope

      The main aim of The Journal of Tourism and Peace Research is to provide a peer-reviewed forum for the study and discussion of tourism and peace issues in tourism and tourism-related areas of leisure, recreation and hospitality studies. The realities of the 21st Century, including globalization, the EU enlargement, immigration, terrorism, home-grown terror, made and natural catastrophes, conflicts, stereotypes, perceptions, and rising poverty, necessitate a closer look at the role of tourism. The Journal of Tourism and Peace Research is an international journal that encompasses all aspects of tourism and leisure oriented to peace, cooperation and conflict solutions. Tourism and Peace is broad in scope and deals with many factors relating to peace, such as appropriate planning, international cooperation, peace through tourism, tourism for peace, tourism in conflict-ridden areas, avoiding potential negative impacts of tourism and mitigating existing ones, tourism and human rights, peace museums, tourism and attitude change, inappropriate tourism behavior, inappropriate industry behavior, tourism and peace initiatives and examples of good practice through tourism, tourism and borders – physical and perceptual, tourism and cross cultural behavior and understanding, tourism encounters, political tourism, and ethical tourism.

      The major concerns of the journal revolve around the myths, realities and potential of tourism as an agent of peace. Critical questions concerning the extent to which tourism can contribute to the multifaceted nature of peace, and help it to function in an ethical manner can guide our research.

      Tribe (2008: 245) reminds us that “tourism ought to be a more critical business”. The Journal of Tourism and Peace Research hopes to engage peace and tourism researchers with critical theory, using its insights and guidance to answer related critical questions. In the tourism and peace context, aspects of critical theory can help us to understand what tourism is and what it is not, what it can do and what it cannot.  The business of tourism is imbued with conflicting dynamics of power, struggle, empowerment, equality, hegemony, imperialism, inequality, exclusion, ideology, oppression, rejection, emancipation, and others. As “critical theory deliberately seeks to engage with normative questions of values and desired ends” (Tribe: 247), concepts such as these and other domains of critical theory can help us to further our understanding of the tourism environment with the objective of finding ways of using tourism to the benefit of peace.

      The Journal of Tourism and Peace Research welcomes submissions from scholars in all parts of the world. Submitted research papers should normally be 4000-7000 words in length, and should demonstrate original and substantive contributions to scientific knowledge. Shorter articles in the form of Research Notes, Commentaries, Reports, and Reviews may also be submitted. The Journal of Tourism and Peace Research will be published twice a year, and will include themed collections as well as individual papers. The Journal of Tourism and Peace Research is committed to maintaining a high standard of quality and excellence through rigorous review procedures. In addition to tourism, it is of relevance to a number of disciplines, including sociology, anthropology, geography, environmental studies, peace and conflict studies, urban planning and hospitality management.
