Abstract

Domestic tourism in a multicultural nation that has been divided or remain hostile to each other can be a means of reducing tension and promoting dialogue, cross-cultural understanding and reconciliation mechanism for socio-cultural and political crisis. Therefore, the main purpose of this study was to explore the role of domestic tourism as a reconciliation mechanism for socio-cultural and political crisis in the multicultural society of Ethiopia. To achieve this objective, quantitative and qualitative case study method and, purposive and stratified sampling techniques were employed for questionnaire, focus group discussion and interview data gathering instruments. Tourism stakeholders, experts and domestic tourists were participated in the study. Quantitative data was hand-coded into SPSS and analyzed by descriptive statistics, correlation, ANOVA and independent t-test. The interpretation of qualitative data was used a thematic descriptive approach that utilizes a theme summary data and unattributed quotes to illustrate dominant issues in respondents’ own words. Generally, both the qualitative and quantitative data revealed that domestic tourism plays a great role as a crisis shock absorber, conflict resolution mechanism, bringing social justice, easing social tension, tolerance, mutual respect and reconciliation for a divided society. The t-test elucidated that there was a statically significance difference between the single and married respondents on domestic tourism’s role but their average mean was fairly above the average mean value. However, the ANOVA and t-test elucidated that there was no statically significance difference between sex, age, experience and educational qualification groups of respondents on the issue of domestic tourism’s role as a reconciliation mechanism. Finally, based on the results of the study involvement of religious and cultural institutions and their leaders, and government should encourage reconciliation work through domestic tourism were some of the recommended points to the sustainable development of domestic tourism and national reconciliation.
