Regina Scheyvens is Professor of Development Studies at Massey University, where she combines a passion for teaching about international development with research on tourism and sustainable development. Two major books have emerged from this research: Tourism for Development: Empowering Communities (Pearson, 2002), and Tourism and Poverty (Routledge, 2011). Regina’s interest in responsible and ethical research led her to edit Development Fieldwork: A Practical Guide (Sage, 2014).   She has also published articles on themes such as backpacker tourism, tourism in small island states, ecotourism, empowerment and sustainable tourism in a wide range of tourism and development studies journals. The South Pacific is the main focus of Regina’s research.

In terms of the SDGs, her most recent research examines corporate social responsibility and the role of the private sector in achieving the SDGs (SDG 8, 17), and the concept of ‘inclusive tourism development’ (see special issue of Tourism Geographies, 2018).
