This article is a supplement to and continuation of the author's prior investigations into the form and the scope of international collaboration in tourism, and the process of internationalizing tourism policy conducted by nation states. In this article, the perspective of analysis has been broadened from an international (chiefly European) scale to a global one. It puts forward the thesis that the extraordinarily dynamic changes underway in the broadlydefined tourism "environment" (such as the globalization of the economy, and others that are transforming the whole modern world: "megatrends") have such a major impact on the way the tourism market functions and generate such problems for the industry that it is crucial to revise our views on the scope and forms of tourism policies. Many of the key issues for the further development of tourism are such that they require solving not only on a national scale, but on an international, or even a global one. This places new challenges before the traditional conception of tourism policy. The titular investigations into the applicability or capacity for shaping a global tourism policy are prefaced by an analysis of the main theories on collaboration and international integration, as well as the identification of the chief signs indicating the development of the internationalization (or even "globalization") process of tourism policy. The issues addressed are raised in the first part of the article. The second part presents a certain wide-spanning research project which should respond to at least some of the questions raised in this article, and show prospects for the development of tourism policy on a global scale.
