about the speaker

Dr Tamás Régi is Assistant Professor in the Sociology Department at Keimyung University, South Korea and also holds an Associate Professor position in the Tourism Department at the Kodolányi János University of Applied Sciences in Hungary. Tamás graduated in 2003 from the Social and Visual Anthropology Department, University of Miskolc, Hungary, and earned his PhD in 2011 at Leeds Metropolitan University, UK.

Dr. Régi’s main research area is the anthropology of human mobility with a particular interest in the politics of tourism and migration in East Africa. Tamás has conducted anthropological fieldwork among the south Ethiopian semi-nomadic Mursi people, who currently face huge government pressure to resettle. Dr. Régi’s current project is to investigate the possible social and cultural answers this small scale pastoral society could have for the growing political pressure of the federal state.

The title of his paper is: 'End of the journey? Forced resettlement among the Mursi of south Ethiopia.'
