During the program United African Women’s Organization discussed its achievements regarding legislation for the second generation (children born and raised in Greece), the challenges migrant-run organizations face today in the current landscape of NGOs in Greece/Europe, and the how important it is for spaces and migrant-led organizations to exist in which migrants/refugees speak about their challenges on their own terms, without intermediaries.
Mid-way through the radio show insights were also given by Julia Suárez-Krabbe (lecturer at Roskilde University and authοr of the book; ‘Race, Rights and Rebels; Alternatives to Human Rights and Development from the Global South.’) regarding the historical racism and colonial undertones of the term “human rights”.
