Welcome to the Radio Program with McGill Students Chapter of Journalists for Human Rights!
The main premise of the radio program involves the organization and production of podcasts that are made in conjunction with McGill’s campus radio station, CKUT. The process consists of research, community advocacy and learning the actual technical process that belies the making of podcasts. Based on your interests and skills you’d like to develop, there are many opportunities where individuals can contribute.
The podcasts will focus on a topic related to human rights and incorporate various dimensions through conducting a series of interviews. Previous podcasts have consisted of interviews featuring activists, organization representatives and members of the academia who have offered their opinions on varying issues pertaining to human rights.
This year’s portfolio consists of an undergoing podcast that will analyze the underlying issues of the Syrian Refugee Crisis and subsequent resettlement and integration process at the local and international level. Other potential topics may include a discussion covering the Black Lives Matter Movement in the United States. The radio program, in align with other media portfolios of JHR McGill this year will focus on the topic of Indigenous rights in both the domestic and international context.
Should you have any questions or if you would like to get involved with the radio program, feel free to contact the VP-Radio, Soyoung Lee or you can find us on Facebook and Email.
