The paper empirically examines the nexus between tourism and peace. To do so, it uses in the analysis the recently developed composite Global Peace Index. The sample employed consists of 113 countries and covers the period 2008–2014. The methodology adopted includes PVAR Granger causality tests and impulse response functions. The sample was split into two income groups to allow for the possibility that the nexus differs between developed and developing countries. Findings reported herein indicate a temporary, very short-term adverse effect on tourism as a result of worsening levels of peacefulness only for the former group of countries. A peace promoting effect by tourism is established in the case of the latter group.
