This conceptual study proposes a comprehensive tourism development support model for developing countries. It focuses on residents’ perceptions of imperialism as a new contribution to the tourism literature, as well as their trust and identity; and how these constructs can influence their perceptions of tourism and subsequently their support for its development. The residents’ perceptions of tourism development are examined with respect to the perceived positive and negative impacts. The residents’ support for tourism is assessed by their attitudes toward its development. The model also proposes the relationship among imperialism, trust and identity. Respectively, the institutional, social exchange and identity theories are used to provide theoretical support for the nine research propositions. The model provides the foundation for future empirical analysis of the constructs to ascertain meaningful results for governments and tourism planners. This will enable better policies and decisions regarding the residents and tourism development in developing countries.
