“Mursi people should not be paid for being photographed, so that they eventually will start searching for alternative and more traditional ways of making a living.”


“In order to achieve encounters that are more effective and relaxed for all stakeholders involved, tour operators should limit the number of tourists per year by stricter rules or by raising prices for the excursion.”
