aditus on national radio talking about human rights

This morning our Director, Neil Falzon, participated in the live programme Familja Waħda (‘One Family’) on Radju Malta (93.7) to discuss human rights.  “I’m happy that the phone-ins were actually very interesting, not the usual migrant-bashing,”  says Neil, after spending around 30 minutes discussing human rights with Ms. Lilian Maistre, the programme’s presenter.

The discussion, the second in an informal series of interventions, started off by looking at the universality of human rights, then focusing on how this universality is applied in the case of migrants, asylum-seekers and refugees.

aditus is often engaged in media interventions such as this one, as they offer an excellent opportunity to reach out to a broad public spectrum to raise human rights awareness and inform people of their right.  aditus also sees the potential of these programmes to counter xenophobic sentiment by providing accurate facts and perspectives.

The discussion will continue on 6th July at 11.15.
