Refugee future TV, the Youtube channel ZUKAR, Refugee Radio Network: Meanwhile, more and more fugitives are taking their camera and microphone into their own hands and reporting on their new home. While the issue of integration is a bit behind the scenes, it is still relevant to the people concerned to engage themselves.
Refugee future TV, der Youtube-Kanal ZUKAR, Refugee Radio Network: Inzwischen nehmen immer mehr Geflüchtete selbst Kamera und Mikrofon in die Hand und berichten aus ihrer neuen Heimat. Das Thema Integration ist zwar ein bisschen in den Hintergrund gerückt, aber für die Betroffenen nach wie vor so relevant, dass sie sich selbst engagieren.
Self-organized Refugee radio
No one can report such an escape as the ones they have experienced!
Why is it important for fugitives not only to use media and to make them a subject, but to make their own medium? We have discussed the example of radio with fugitive activists from self-organized radio programs:
Common Voices is produced collectively and in several languages and broadcast live on Radio Corax, the free radio from Halle, on a weekly basis, and also on the Refugee Radio Network (RRN). The RRN links various initiatives of fugitives, the core is the self-organized 24-hour onlineradio, in which own and foreign productions run in many languages, but also the cooperation with citizen radios and free radios like FSK in Hamburg, Radio Corax and others Productions of the RRN over their frequencies.
There are quite a few quite different reasons to participate in such radio initiatives. Maryam F., Fatima A., Ousmane, Bassam Alhassan and Mohamad M. of Common Voices, Ahmed Nuur Ibrahim, who produced Somali Voices for the RRN, and Larry M. Macaulay, founder and presenter at the RRN.

In the next issue of PANTA, I had the chance to interview my insanely talented friend Atong Atem (who is on the cover!) about her photographic series Third Culture Kids and caught up with Larry Elcapitan , the founder ofRefugee Radio Network, on setting up an alternative media stream - for refugees, by refugees - in Germany. Along with Guille Lasarte, Charlotte Specht, Mario Rueda and Sophie Smeets, the most determined and vibrant team I could ever dream to be apart of <3, I am honoured to have been the copy editor of the 10th issue of this independent and innovative publication.

“The community was not aware of why we were in their community, they didn’t know what drove us away from Libya, they didn’t know what drove us away from Italy, they were fed with wrong news in their daily newspapers, and their televisions about refugees,” Macaulay said. “Some networks weren’t even publishing anything about refugee issues as of 2014…I just saw it as an opportunity…we will now start teaching each other.”
I met Larry Elcapitan the founder Refugee Radio Network in Italy a few months ago and attended his workshop on the story of Refugee Radio Network. I recently interviewed Larry for Images & Voices of Hope.

Pre-Conference to ECREA´s sixth European Communication Conference
The conference addressed the broad topic of media and migration, focusing on topics such as the role of the media in the refugee crisis; media depictions of immigrant and migrant communities; and the media’s influence on belonging and identity – especially in the context of transnationalism, multiculturalism, and a globalized world.
