Diana Szántó, PhD

Diana received her PhD in social anthropology in 2015 from the University of Pécs in Hungary. Her PhD dissertation was based on long-term fieldwork with polio-disabled people in Sierra Leone. A migrant herself, Diana has built a professional career in France and in Hungary. Beginning in 1998, she participated in the Hungarian post-socialist democratization process as the founder and leader of the Artemisszió Foundation, a local NGO based in Budapest. Under her leadership, the organization has grown to be a focal point for intercultural dialogue and intercultural learning in Hungary. She is the national leader of an international research project exploring diversity in the health sector in six European countries. She lectures at several Hungarian universities and is the author of a dozen scientific articles and co-author of several anthropological documentary films. Her research focuses on urban anthropology, migration and social movements, and the intersection of international development, social justice, and health.
