Tourism education is crucial in responding to the broader issues within tourism development that affect the wider society. The position adopted in this paper is: if the tourism curriculum is to contribute to the development of tourism in such a way that it benefits the wider society, then individuals in the local society should have a say in what is considered to be relevant for inclusion in that curriculum. With this view, the purpose of this paper is to explore stakeholder theory and examine its relevance and applicability to tourism curriculum development in the Caribbean.
