Episode 7 – Amnesty and Activism is LIVE!!!

Just in time for the students facing into this year’s exam, Episode 7 – Amnesty and Activism is LIVE!!!!

In this episode we’re joined by Colm O’Gorman of Amnesty International Ireland for a wide-ranging discussion of activism, human rights, the role of NGOs, and the media in modern society. Colm’s insights are not only fascinating, but incredibly relevant to the goals of the Pol Soc course. I even get him to give his two cents on a few of our specific debate topics.

We’re also joined by Beth Doherty, a Transition Year student from Alexandra College, Dublin to discuss her involvement with the “Friday’s for Future” climate strikes. Find the ‘Episode Notes’ for this podcast on the website https://polsocpodcast.com/episode-notes/

Episode Notes and further resources, including how to get involved with the organizations mentioned, will be posted shortly (It’s a busy time of year, after all!)
