With crime and it’s resources a heavy focus in the 2016 election campaign, law and criminology experts should be on hand to provide opinions. This is a major factor in the general election and could be major opportunity for experts to get out there.

In addition to the election bubble, technical experts can use upcoming World Radio Day on the 13th February to discuss topics like the changing scope of radio and media. Interesting topics around this include the questions is radio a dying element of traditional media.

World Day of Social Justice is upcoming on the 20th February. This is an excellent opportunity for experts in both Law, Human Rights and even history to get their voices heard.

Of course 1916 is a huge topic this week and for the next month. History buffs are going to be hugely popular with the media.

Story of the day: Wold Humanitarian Day: Migration in the Mediterranean

August 19, 2015 Posted in : EU affairs, Europe, Experts, Galzacs Guide, Galzacs15, Government, International affairs, Ireland, Journalists, Migration, MSF

Today is World Humanitarian Day and we have an expert available to comment throughout the day.

Story Idea: Recent tragic mass-drownings at sea and disgraceful behaviour by authorities on European soil have put the spotlight on the Mediterranean; where record numbers of people are fleeing brutal wars and insecurity in the Middle East and Africa by attempting the dangerous crossing in un-seaworthy boats. Three Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) search & rescue vessels have saved over 10,600 lives at sea (about 15% of all those saved) but tragically there have been too many drownings and deaths at sea. Our medical teams are also working with refugees and migrants in the port of Pozallo, Sicily and in Kos, Greece; where in-adequate reception facilities exist. The scale of this humanitarian crisis requires Europe to do more for people who risk their lives at sea, and when they reach land in Europe.
