We in the Human Rights League are starting a new podcast series in cooperation with .týždeň named Migration Compass that is focused on the topics of migration, integration and asylum. The aim of the podcast series is to improve awareness of the general public as well as of the leaders that influence the policy regulations in the given areas.
The podcast series has 24 episodes that will guide its listeners through various topics, from the basic terms up to the expert analyses in the area of migration. We recorded interesting interviews with experts in this field as well as with people who are willing to share their personal story and experience. Would you like to know what is asylum and subsidiary protection? How can a person become stateless during his life? How does it feel to run from war at the age of fourteen without parents and travel six months alone by foot, ship or a truck? Are the terms refugee and migrant the same?
