Welcome to your Full Scottish, live from our Cowcaddens studio in Glasgow.
Full Scottish programme starts at 12:00 on Sunday 5th August 2018
On this week’s Full Scottish, Cameron Archibald is joined by iScot Magazine Editor and Publisher, Ken McDonald and by Professor Alison Phipps, Professor of Languages and Intercultural Studies at Glasgow University and UNESCO Chair in Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts.
We will kick off by talking about the BBC shutting down pro-independence YouTube channels – Was it breach of copyright or “Fair Dealing” and was their a more sinister motive behind it?
As a new study finds media (over)exposure of UKIP increased their support, has media exposure led to the growth of far right parties in Europe and around the world.
Migration is normal human activity; the search for safety, and security, physically and economically has driven people to cross oceans and continents since time began. Great nations have been built on this migration, but, what about the poor and traumatised refugees who reach our shores? Should they be received into a welcoming or a hostile environment.
Which leads us to how should we provide services for refugees and asylum seekers – through state/local authority provision or by outsourcing to private sector companies? Should we change the locks and leave them destitute on the streets once their asylum claims have been rejected?
Alison Phipps holds the UNESCO Chair in Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts at the University of Glasgow where she is also Professor of Languages and Intercultural Studies, and Co-Convener of Glasgow Refugee, Asylum and Migration Network (GRAMNET).
