    Address

    Zdeněk Uherek focuses on the ethnology and anthropology of the Roma, namely Romani migration, identity and the changes of lifestyle connected with migration. He researched the migration of the Roma from Slovakia and Czechia after 1989, focusing especially on Canada. He is also interested in the employment rate of Roma in the Czech Republic and, together with other experts, he took part in a research for the World Bank focusing on the issue. Moreover, he also participated in research of the Faculty of Health and Social Sciences of the University of South Bohemia which dealt with the lifestyle of the Roma in Czechia and Slovakia. The Romani emancipation processes also count among his research interests, and so does migration from third countries, integration of foreigners, and theory of ethnicity, urban anthropology and Czech people abroad. Apart from the Czech Republic, he conducts his research primarily in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also in Slovakia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Canada.
