Making migrants voices heard is the common thread throughout the activities that will take place during the week of 18th December, International Migrants' Day. And this is precisely what is at the heart of Radio 1812: a global radio event that celebrates International Migrants' Day.
We hope to make this experience pleasant and exciting for you all, so here is a quick overview of what you will find on this site and how you can take part:
Radio 1812’s home page functions as an “à la carte” menu for the rest of the site, highlighting the exciting things happening on the site, the most interesting audios, the thought-provoking issues discussed or presented on the site, how to remain informed through our RSS feed and mailing list, and much more… The home page also brings you a world map featuring the radio stations taking part in the event.
Well you are there now! This will give you a bit more background on who is behind Radio 1812, why we thought this was an important project and the other initiatives that December 18 is regularly involved in.
This section provides basic information on the field of migration as well as thought-provoking and engaging pieces from professionals in the field (these opinion pieces will be published in the run up to the International Migrants Day celebrations).
The thematic briefings are short documents presenting key issues that are critical to the field of migration. They also provide further links for contacting organisations specializing on these issues and links to relevant websites that carry more in-depth information. This is for anyone new to the migration field or looking for inspiration, angles, and ideas for programming on migration.
The Radio 1812 site also regularly aggregates news, especially from the December 18 site.
