GCRF South-South Migration, Inequality and Development Hub

Lead Research Organisation: Coventry University
Department Name: Centre for Trust Peace & Social Relation

Abstract

Migration between the countries of the Global South, otherwise known as South-South migration (SSM), accounts for nearly half of all international migration, reaching almost 70% in some places. The potential of SSM to contribute to development and delivery of the SDGs is widely acknowledged but remains unrealised, largely due to existing inequalities at the global, national and local levels which determine who is (and is not) able to migrate, where to, and under which terms and conditions. These multidimensional inequalities are associated with a lack of rights for migrants and their families; difficult, expensive and sometimes dangerous journeys; and limited opportunities to access services and protection, which can, in turn, exacerbate inequalities. The challenge of ensuring that SSM reduces inequalities and contributes to delivery of the SDGs is intractable due to:
- A lack of evidence about the ways in which horizontal and vertical inequalities can undermine major development investments and policies, and about the types of interventions which can overcome inequalities associated with SSM;
- A failure of existing development approaches to take account of how SSM (and related policies) is/are influenced by broader economic, political and social processes (and relevant sectoral policies);
- A focus on individual ODA-recipient countries rather than on dynamic effects along migration 'corridors' which connect origin and destination countries and the development implications of (two-way) flows of people, finance, trade and knowledge;
- The politicisation of migration and a growing tendency to focus on migration management and border controls at the expense of equitable migration and development related outcomes;
- The top-down, high-level orientation of much development policy planning which can dehumanise migrants by focusing on economic indicators and outcomes rather than experiences and well-being, broadly defined; and
- A gap between policy and legal frameworks to limit inequalities associated with SSM (where these exist), and their equitable delivery / implementation in practice.

The Hub is oriented towards addressing this challenge and ensuring that SSM is able to make a more equitable and effective contribution to poverty reduction, development and delivery of the SDGs, particularly SDGs 1, 5, 8 and 10. It does so by bringing together, for the first time, research and delivery partners from 12 ODA-recipient countries which constitute six SSM 'corridors' (Burkina Faso-Cote d'Ivoire, China-Ghana, Egypt-Jordan, Ethiopia-South Africa, Haiti-Brazil, Nepal-Malaysia) who will work in partnership with five UN agencies and the OECD. The Hub will deliver challenge-led programmes of research and evaluation to address inequalities associated with SSM, undertaking extensive new data collection and policy analysis, and testing interventions and solutions in a range of geographical contexts. The Overseas Development Institute (ODI) will lead the Hub's communication and dissemination work, working alongside our research partners in the Global South to develop a range of outputs for different local, national and global audiences to maximise the Hub's impact on policy and practice.

The Hub builds on existing RCUK investments but also develops equitable new partnerships in order to generate novel and innovative perspectives on the intractable challenge which it seeks to address. In particular, by bringing together researchers from the Global South working across the countries making up the SSM corridors, and connecting these teams with leading migration scholars in the Global North, the Hub provides an opportunity for significant cross-learning within and between the corridors, and on SSM more generally. In so doing it offers considerable added value, strengthening capacity and capability for understanding - and responding to - the challenges associated with SSM and delivery of the SDGs.

Planned Impact

The Hub will contribute to efforts to ensure that individuals, households, communities and countries in the Global South benefit fully and equitably from SSM and that its benefits are properly harnessed to support delivery of the SDGs. The Hub's impact work in countries at both ends of the corridors focuses on three main policy areas which are informed by UNDP's (2013) framework for addressing global inequalities: reducing income inequalities caused or exacerbated by SSM; closing gaps in education, health and other outcomes for migrants and their families; and tackling SSM-related prejudice, discrimination and exclusion. Specifically:
1. Policies to reduce income inequalities
Inequality, particularly income inequality, plays a key role in determining human well-being, intersecting with horizontal inequalities such as gender and age in specific ways in different geographical contexts. The Hub will generate evidence to support policies and approaches to ensure that SSM reduces these inequalities, for example by:
- Providing capital and other livelihood opportunities for those who do not want to migrate;
- Ensuring equal access to a range of (legal) migration opportunities;
- Regulating recruitment processes to ensure that migrant labour contracts are fair, accommodation is affordable, and abuses are minimised;
- Reducing the costs of migration, in particular recruitment fees and remittance transfers; and
- Supporting hometown, religious, community and wider diaspora associations which channel remittances and knowledge to community-level investments and initiatives.
2. Closing gaps in education, health and other outcomes
Delivery of the SDGs and economic growth depend on improved outcomes in education and health. Migrants and their families often experience difficulties in securing access to key services and social protections due to a lack of legal rights, knowledge and/or poverty, with disproportionate effects experienced by groups such as children who move independently or remain behind. The Hub will contribute to policy efforts that close gaps in education, health and other outcomes, for example by:
- Securing access to social protection for migrants regardless of status or sector;
- Expanding access to education, health and other opportunities for migrants (including migrant children and the children of migrants) through sectoral policies that address the needs of migrants and specific sub-groups;
- Developing appropriate legal frameworks to ensure migrants can access their rights to social protection; and
- Building legal empowerment movements to ensure migrants know about, and are able to access, their rights.
3. Tackling prejudice, discrimination and social exclusion
Prejudice, discrimination and social exclusion directed towards migrants serve to reinforce inequalities of outcomes and opportunities and impact on delivery of the SDGs. Anti-discriminatory legislation and universal service provision can help promote equal opportunity, but interventions are also required to develop and strengthen the agency, voice and political participation of migrants and their families so that they can shape their environment and the decision-making processes that affect their well-being. The Hub will work with project partners to shift dominant, often negative, political and policy narratives around SSM at local, national, regional and global levels, for example by:
- Strengthening civic engagement of socially excluded/marginalised groups;
- Working with policy makers and advocacy organisations to develop legislation based on the human rights principles of equality and non-discrimination;
- Using new technologies to create inclusive citizen networks and build transnational solidarity;
- Working with grassroots empowerment initiatives to ensure migrants are able to access legal rights and entitlements; and
- Creating political space for policy interventions that directly address inequalities arising from SSM.

Description Coventry Creates is part of the ongoing work by Coventry and Warwick universities in the lead up to the City of Culture. The University Partnership has funded over 30 creative research projects, involving over 50 Coventry organisations and local communities. During the March-May 2020 COVID-19 UK lockdown Coventry University and the University of Warwick selected 18 local artists to receive a grant that allowed them to continue their work during the pandemic. Coventry Creates received over 100 applications and has funded 18 collaborative projects with researchers from the social sciences, arts, science and medicine from across both the city's universities. The output is a digital exhibition of artworks created during lockdown and inspired by university research. Included amongst these 18 artistic responses to research are poetry about Coventry, Covid-19 and the Black Lives Matters movement as well as stories about what Coventry means to refugees, Coventry's twinning history, women's suffrage and how interactive games can help break down the complexities of homelessness. The creative connections between artists and researchers living in Coventry are highlighted by 'The Artist and the Professor' (see separate entry).

Description An artistic collaboration between Laura Nyahuye (Maokwo Arts) and Heaven Crawley (Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations, Coventry University), respectively an artist and a professor based in Coventry, UK. Whilst theymight appear to have little in common, the COVID-19 lockdown has provided an opportunity to draw together their personal and professional experiences in order to reflect on issues of migration, resilience and hope in times of crisis. Individually and through conversations with each another by email, WhatsApp and Zoom, Laura and Heaven took the opportunity provided by the lockdown to explore their shared experiences as women, wives, (grand)mothers and survivors of hardship and domestic violence, producing a series of creative outputs (prose, drawings, body adornment, photography, video) which explore the ways in which personal and societal expectations of gendered and racialized roles and responsibilities have shaped theirlives. By sharing their experiences - often in very frank and explicit ways - the online exhibition highlights the ways in which, as women, can come together to push against the categories that limit individual and collective possibilities for change.

Description Some delays in research delivery due to COVID-19 have been inevitable, most notably the postponement of the fieldwork that was due to start in March 2020. Nonetheless we are able to report significant progress in relation to data collection and analysis in a number of countries. Following a period of adaptation to the new context which included the production of new research protocols for face-to-face fieldwork (including, for example, provision of PPE for both researchers and participants), data collection has now been completed for the Hub-wide survey in two countries (Burkina Faso, Haiti) and is nearing completion in a further two (Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana). A number of teams have adapted their methodological approach to include online data collection and many of the teams have been able to undertake qualitative data collection. Drawing on this initial wave of research, MIDEQ Hub members have produced nearly 100 publications, including more than 40 blogs reflecting on emerging challenges and issues. A key finding across virtually all contexts is that the COVID-19 pandemic has amplified and deepened existing inequalities, including those associated with migration. The examples that follow are illustrative:

- Malaysia is a country which is heavily dependent on the labour of both documented and undocumented workers. It produces two-thirds of disposable rubber gloves worldwide, largely using migrant labour from Nepal and Bangladesh. Whilst the companies producing disposable gloves are thriving during the pandemic, migrant workers are not. MIDEQ researchers found that governments seeking to secure PPE for their frontline healthcare workers have chosen to overlook concerns about the appalling conditions experienced by many of these workers due to increased demand. Meanwhile, the Malaysian government has chosen to blame migrants for the pandemic and used it as a pretext for arbitrary detention and deportation;

- Nepali migrant workers are among those returning from Malaysia in significant numbers. According to MIDEQ researchers in Nepal, the consequences are not entirely negative: returnees are contributing to agricultural productivity and rebalancing a growing dependence on remittances from migrant labour and there is potential for the role of intermediaries to diversify. Nonetheless evidence from fieldwork in Nepal suggests that the significant downturn in the flow of resources into Nepali families and communities associated with COVID-19 is certain to have implications;

- In Ethiopia, similarly, remittances make a crucial contribution to the macroeconomic balance, providing a much-needed source of foreign exchange. MIDEQ researchers have focused on better understanding the implications of COVID-19 for the significant flows that reach communities through informal rather than formal channels. The focus is on the Hadiya-Kembata region in Southern Ethiopia, a major place of origin for Ethiopian migrants to South Africa. It is clear from MIDEQ's research that the national lockdown has caused many migrant-owned small businesses to either collapse or find themselves of the verge of bankruptcy;

- In Haiti too there are significant concerns that any decrease in remittance transfers poses an immediate threat to the health and well-being of many Haitian families. Mixed-methods research undertaken by the Interuniversity Institute for Research and Development (INURED) indicates a dire situation in terms of the impacts of the pandemic on households and the most vulnerable in Haitian society, including the poor, women, and girls. The pandemic arrived on the heels of political and economic crises, intensifying pre-existing conditions of vulnerability while further disrupting daily life. In addition, the study unearths the disparate impacts of the pandemic on urban and rural households, suggesting that although the public health risks in densely populated urban areas may be higher, the economic impacts on rural populations are, in many ways, more devastating. Remittances from key destination countries in the Global North, such as the United States and Canada, proved to be a vital mitigating force during the pandemic, whereas remittance transfers from the Global South such as Brazil and Chile decreased during the crisis. Methodologically, the study highlights the importance of flexible participatory approach in times of pandemic in a population already fragilized by violence and political instability; and

- The findings of research from Ghana shows that income inequality between China and Ghana is a driving force of migration between the two countries. Migration between Ghana and China has yielded some positive outcomes (e.g. remittances, investments) not only for the nation-state but for migrants and their families. Remittances and investment flow from China to Ghana and from Ghana to China have increased in recent years. Harnessing the benefits from the Ghana-China migration has the potential to enhance livelihoods, reduce poverty and smoothen social inequalities in Ghana, but the institutional, policy and behavioural conditioning factors need to be addressed. As elsewhere, COVID-10 has had significant implications for the transfer of people and resources between the two countries.
Exploitation Route The reach of MIDEQ's engagement and impact both within and outside academia is growing rapidly, facilitated by a comprehensive and nuanced understanding of how change happens based on the collective development of the Hub's Theory of Change (ToC). Our thinking in relation to the MIDEQ Hub's Pathways to Impact has evolved significantly since the proposal was first submitted and three main pathways have emerged through which MIDEQ's work might be taken forward and put to use by others, namely: 1) a pathway on contributing to knowledge production and academic capacity, particularly in the context of the Global South; 2) a pathway on making recommendations and supporting initiatives to improve the lives of migrants, their families and communities; and 3) a pathway on contributing to more nuanced and humanised narratives on migration. These pathways are not silos, but rather are mutually reinforcing and interconnected. They are also increasingly ambitious, so that pathway 1) lies more within MIDEQ's sphere of influence than pathways 2) and 3) with differential timescales that reflect this. Ensuring that the findings of the MIDEQ Hub are taken forward and put to use by others depends in part on socio-economic and political factors beyond on the Hub's control: the relationship between research and impact is rarely linear. Nonetheless we envisage that the reach and significance of the Hub's work will increase as the project gathers momentum and research findings, data and outputs increase, with multiplier effects through our relationships with local, national and regional partners including our international project partners who are well placed to amplify the project's findings across a range of different political and policy contexts. We intend to employ a wide range of different communication methods and tools (including blogs, policy reports, working papers, poetry, animation and the visual arts) to engage different audiences. In addition, embedding multilingual working into the heart and soul of the Hub's work will be critical to ensuring that the findings of the work can be understood, taken forward and put to use by others. The MIDEQ website is in four languages and members of the team are encouraged to communicate and write in multiple languages as appropriate to the contexts in which they are working.

Description Members of the MIDEQ Hub have numerous partners with whom they are working to ensure that the findings of the research are taken forward and put to use by others. This includes our formal partnerships with international organisations such as IOM, ILO, OECD, OHCHR and UNRISD as well as a myriad of less formal partnerships and working relationships with local, national and regional organisations in the countries in which we are working, many of which are developing as the project progresses. The findings of the research are being both co-developed with, and communicated to, these constituencies. In Haiti for example the results of INURED's research are being circulated among policy makers and shared with multilateral agencies in the hope that they will impact policy decisions that affect the vulnerable populations in that country. In addition, partnerships are created with local civil society actors to boost advocacy for the vulnerable families. MIDEQ colleagues in Ghana are currently sharing the outputs of their work with policy makers and public officials involved in migration policy and practice and are using the findings to develop and implement capacity building programmes for policy makers, migrants and host communities. These programmes will enhance their capacity to protect migrants and maximise the developmental impacts of migration. In South Africa colleagues are working closely with local migrant advocacy organisations and support groups, including some established as a direct result of the research, to address the immediate and pressing needs of the local community as a consequence of the pandemic. Local organisations such IOM have reached out to the research team to better understand the ways in which migrants make use of technology in that context. At the global level, members of the MIDEQ Hub are working closely with the project's international partners to ensure that the findings of the research feed into policy discussions and dialogues, for example the OECD Policy Dialogue on Migration and Development. Others are working with the European Commission, Praxis, UNESCO Art Lab and/or are represented on various guideline drafting committees and project Advisory Boards (see report for details of the engagement activities and their outcomes). In countries where our partners are directly involved in the development of national migration and national labour migration policies and programmes, our work has increased understanding of how to incorporate inequalities and developmental issues associated with South-South migration into policy. For example, inequalities associated with South-South Migration have been discussed in the National Labour Migration Policy of Ghana which was drafted by MIDEQ's Co-Director Professor Joseph Teye and approved by the Ghanaian government in 2020. Migration-related inequalities are also addressed in the draft national migration policies of Malawi, Zimbabwe, and Zambia with input from MIDEQ's researchers in Ghana. Dr Katharine Jones who leads the Hub's thematic work on intermediaries organised a global IOM conference for member states on the topic of ethical recruitment. The event brought together senior policymakers, leading experts and practitioners from ministries of Labour, Foreign Affairs and Immigration, supported by experts from international and regional organizations, including the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), International Labour Organization (ILO) and Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). Dr Jones drafted the resulting Montreal Recommendations based on negotiated agreement at the two-day event. This led directly to formation of the IOM Policy Network on Ethical Recruitment. The new Global Policy Network on Recruitment will address shortcomings in regulation and enforcement that can exacerbate vulnerabilities and lead to gaps in the protection of migrant workers.

Impact Katharine Jones organised a global conference for IOM 173 member states on the topic of ethical recruitment. " With the aim of improving the inter-jurisdictional regulation of international labour recruitment, 100 regulators from more than 30 countries gathered at the Global Conference on the Regulation of International Recruitment, in Montreal, Canada. The International Organization for Migration (IOM) co-hosted this conference in partnership with the Government of Canada and the Gouvernement du Québec, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and the Department of State's Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration of the United States. The event brought together senior policymakers, leading experts and practitioners from ministries of Labour, Foreign Affairs and Immigration, supported by experts from international and regional organizations, including IOM, International Labour Organization (ILO) and Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). Through two days of presentations, round-table discussions and break-out sessions, participants articulated recommendations to improve the regulation of international recruitment in nine principal areas (migrant welfare/ recruitment fees /protecting migrant workers/ Registration and licensing/ ratings rewards and rankings in regulatory systems / grievance mechanisms and access to justice/ bilateral and multilateral mechanisms). Participants included head of labour ministries immigration ministries and enforcement agencies. Katharine drafted the resulting Montreal Recommendations based on negotiated agreement at the two day event. This has led directly to the IOM Policy Network on Ethical Recruitment formation - The new Global Policy Network on Recruitment will address shortcomings in regulation and enforcement that can exacerbate vulnerabilities and lead to gaps in the protection of migrant workers. It will bring together policy makers, regulators, and practitioners from around the world to collectively identify solutions, highlight promising practices and address complex challenges. The Policy Network was launched by the IOM Director General Antonio Vitorino.

Established in 2011, a key element of the School is its aim to mix local and regional students with their peers who may have not had the opportunity to leave their own regions. The School is hosted in a different country each year. In previous years, it has been held in Botswana, Cameroon, Canada, Ghana, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Mauritius, Rwanda and the United Kingdom. In past years, themes have spanned public health, building sustainable communities, big data, global food security and more. This online event was organised by ACU as part of their programme.
Impact Successful delivery of the ACU Summer School in an online format with more than 60 participants from across the Commonwealth.

Description Teaching Migration Through Data and Storytelling - Future Learn Online Course 
Organisation School of Oriental and African Studies (University of London)
Country United Kingdom 
Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution There have been urgent recent calls for curricula to address issues of migration yet 78% of British teachers asked by the Runnymede Trust said they needed more support "to equip them to teach migration more sensitively and effectively." On this course developed as a partnership/collaboration between the University of Coventry and SOAS in partnership with Positive Negatives and Oaklands School, teachers can develop their skills to explain where and why migration happens. They also learn how to interpret big data sets, examining migration research through video and learning activities and explore creative methods of storytelling, visual arts, and design to humanise migration stories through arts and empathic learning.
Collaborator Contribution Members of the MIDEQ consortium have contributed directly to the course content SOAS has hosted the Future Learn course Positive Negatives have coordinated content and engagement Oaklands School have contributed to lesson planning and content
Impact A free three week online course, offered via the Future Learn platform, for teachers to develop their skills in explaining where and why migration happens, using the MEDMIG data set to teach how to interpret big data sets and with input from MIDEQ researchers from Nepal, Ethiopia and the UK. This is a multidisciplinary collaboration with contributions from migration studies, geography, anthropology and the creative arts.The first edition of this course ran from October - November 2020 with 632 learners from 31 countries, many of whom are teachers. Those taking the course provided very positive feedback on the impact on their own thinking around migration, with many indicating that they intend to use the ideas and resources provided by the course in their own lesson planning. Some feedback from the course: "I have become aware of friendly techniques allowing [students] to take a great interest in data sets and large research reports, and got a great data set for work." "I am planning to show students the animations and the data set too. I read many creative ideas on how to engage students in a deeper understanding of the experience of migrants, and I am convinced that I will definitely take the time to cover some personal stories of migrants. I discovered interesting projects and sources, the updates of which I intend to follow and tell about them to other people (in particular, not only students but also colleagues)." "[I learnt about] methods of showing stories to teach about migration... and that we should incorporate this with storytelling in the classroom. I love telling stories and from now on I will try using data sets and infographs as visual aids.On top of that, I will never miss a chance of discussing such issues as migration with my students." "The things I took away are more about my understanding of migration than about learning new facts, although I did learn new facts! People migrating often resettle various times, maybe integrating in a community and leaving it behind again-what does that do to your sense of belonging? I saw one of my students sending pictures about the earthquake in Izmir, and thought that maybe they have made friends there on the way or have family members still there." "I never thought before that the reason why people migrate is actually that diverse." "It has also made me want to show pupils data sets, rather than just processed/presented data." "I gained access to exciting examples of stories and student works on the topics of migration I had never knew before. I have advanced in my ability to streamline teaching. It was a fascinating time, thank you!" "Thank you for the insights into teaching data storytelling through a migration lens, teaching critical thinking and empathy."

Results and Impact On 10 December 2020, Human Rights Day UNESCO Art-Lab hosted a special event "The imperative of cultural justice: arts for inclusion, equity and human rights."

The Art-Lab Platform was initiated during a Design Thinking workshop co-organized by UNESCO and OHCHR in Geneva, in February 2020, bringing together practitioners, cultural operators, artists, experts in human rights, cultural rights and intercultural dialogue, and humanitarian workers. The workshop resulted in a workplan to mainstream the arts in humanitarian and development programmes, based on three major pillars:

Raising awareness within UN agencies and other stakeholders on the transformative power of art and culture in humanitarian work;
Consolidating the Art-Lab Platform in facilitating exchanges between cultural and humanitarian workers, artists and researchers;
Strengthening research and capacity-building, and pilot-testing tools in the field.

At the event on 10 December, members of the Art-Lab platform presented findings and recommendations of the four working groups. A key issue running through the entire programme is the exploration of the idea that cultural rights might be brought to embrace cultural justice. What new spaces can be accessed through such a move and with what gains for human rights and dignity?

This event featured RILA Artists in Residence Dr Gameli Tordzro and Tawona Sitholé, and UNESCO Chair Prof Alison Phipps.

Primary Audience Public/other audiences
Results and Impact In the years around the turn of the millennium it seemed conceivable that a rights-based approach to immigration policy might be adopted by the leading liberal democracies. Initiatives promoted by the United Nations and the World Bank linked migration to development. An International Convention on the Rights of Migrants and their Families gained support among some governments and an annual Global Forum on Migration and Development brought the UN affiliated nations into discussions about the practical measures that might be taken to move in this direction.

The actual history of immigration policy, in the UK and elsewhere since this time has gone in a very different direction. Many of the pre-existing rights that assisted immigrants become established in new countries have been badly eroded, with the framework for policy having taken the track of 'hostile environment' in the UK and closure on asylum protection for refugees across the rest of Europe.

What lessons are to be learnt from the earlier failure to advance a rights-base for immigration policy? How will the current economic crisis impact on the rights of migrants? What might emerge for the rights agenda from the confused haze of Brexit and the Covid virus? Has public reaction to the hostile environment scandal opened up space for an intersectional mobilisation in support of the rights of migrants?

These and other questions were considered by a panel of discussants as part of a Social Scientists Against the Hostile Environment (SSAHE) on1 June 2020 consisting of Don Flynn, Adam Hanieh, Heaven Crawley and Eleonore Kofman and co-chaired by Nira Yuval-Davis and Rachel Humphris.

Results and Impact Together with Dr Katy Brickley, and with the support of the Refugee Council (who hosted the event in London and collaborated with us in advertising the event), Judith Reynolds co-designed and delivered a free half-day training session in September 2019 for refugee and asylum support professionals (asylum legal advisors and others working in migrant support organisations) The training event was focused on language awareness and practical strategies for improving communication with clients who speak other languages, grounded in both Dr Reynolds' research in asylum legal advice communication settings and Dr Brickley's research on Assisted Voluntary Return information provision. Dr Brickley and Dr Reynolds used a range of practical exercises and discussion tasks to expand participants' knowledge of language and multilingualism, and encourage participants to reflect on their use of oral and written language their daily working practices when engaging with asylum and refugee clients. They were joined in co-delivering the event by a current asylum seeker with extensive communications training professional experience, whose engagement enriched the event. They advertised 25 places and the event was booked out. Advice professionals who attended were enthusiastic about the content and reported increased reflection on their use of language with clients, and greater knowledge of practical strategies they could use to support communication with clients. There were requests for the training to be re-run, and Dr Brickley and Dr Reynolds are considering funding options to deliver similar sessions in future both in London and other UK locations in asylum dispersal areas.

Results and Impact Giulio Bajona of the University of Leeds went on a month-long journey through radio. The UNESCO RILA team worked alongside him to remember how 'revolutionary' radio was, when it was first invented, and still is, in many ways. Rediscover its power and resilience through the piece written during his research at the UK National Commission for UNESCO.

The report is informed by not only academic articles, but also, and more importantly, the lived experience of several interviewees, who are all personally and professionally invested in the world of radio. The article explores the relationship between radio, orality and storytelling and, in doing so, it is faced with a paradox: that of describing the power of the spoken word through the written word. Several audio clips are embedded throughout the text, in order to exemplify the concepts being discussed, but also to demonstrate how irreplaceable our voice is.
