Declarations— The Human Rights Podcast

Students at CGHR

Declarations is the human rights podcast from the Centre of Governance and Human Rights, University of Cambridge. Tune in as we explore human rights with people who study them, and people who fight for them, from the UK and around the world.

Started in 2016, the podcast brings in academics, activists, and practitioners for accessible discussions about their areas of expertise as they relate to human rights for audiences from all walks of life.

Annually, we recruit a brilliant and inclusive new team of volunteers to help produce accessible, critical content about human rights for our global and diverse listenership.

As part of the Declarations team, volunteers have the opportunity to shape the podcast’s orientation, guests and content. Last year, in Season 7, the podcast covered the theme Borders & Boundaries. From exploring the boundaries of climate governance to the UK’s Rwanda Asylum Plan, they covered a global range of issues at the cutting edge of human rights advocacy, research and policy.

Now entering Season 8, Declarations has a back catalogue of 96 episodes on topics like racial equality in the United Kingdom, petro-capitalism in Nigeria, and Europe’s missing migrant children. Our previous guests are activists, practitioners and academic experts. Declarations is run out of the Centre of Governance and Human Rights (CGHR) at Cambridge POLIS.

Volunteers can be any member of the university, from undergrads to MPhils, PhDs or distinguished professors, politics junkies or physicists. No knowledge on Artificial Intelligence is required. What’s important is your passion for human rights, social justice and podcasts. Previous experience is welcome, but not necessary. Commitment to diversity is a must. Check out previous episodes on Apple PodcastsSpotify, or wherever you listen. You can also find us on TwitterFacebook, and our website.
