What is Crossings Radio?

Broadcast from the University of Oregon, Crossings Radio is a venue for conflict-sensitive reporting and intercultural dialogue. Students serve as foreign correspondents and report stories from around the world, including Tunisia, France, Costa Rica, Cuba, Azerbaijan, and Latvia.

UNESCO Crossings Institute co-director Steven Shankman says that the program’s goal is “to make visible or audible the many instances of cultural religious and personal rapprochement that happen all around us throughout the world everyday.”

In this episode, Shankman outlines his vision for Crossings Radio during a presentation at the “What Is Journalism?” conference in Portland, Oregon.
