Abstract

The development of communitas is shown to be relevant in a wide range of tourism and leisure contexts. Liminality can be seen as a pre-condition of communitas, and can develop under a variety of conditions. Whilst the presence of liminality fosters the development of communitas, its presence does not, however, guarantee communitas. Attention has been drawn to differences in the way in which various studies employ the term communitas.
