Description:   Interactive Radio for Justice creates dialog between 
victimized populations in regions where the International Criminal Court is 
investigating crimes against humanity and the national and international 
authorities responsible for rendering justice to them. As radio is the 
primary tool for mass communication in the countries where the ICC is 
currently investigating, this dialog is conducted through several series of 
radio programming, each designed to address justice in an interactive 
manner, which are produced in local languages and aired on independent radio 
stations. In addition, listening groups and public meetings with justice 
officials are organized so that target communities have the opportunity to 
discuss justice amongst themselves and directly with national and 
international authorities. To encourage youth to think about and discuss the 
role of justice in their lives, the Music for Justice initiative of IRfJ 
produces music which is written and performed by local youth on justice and 
reconciliation themes. IRfJ is a hands-on field generated project, where the 
issues discussed come directly from the target communities, and programming 
is designed around the voiced concerns of people living in regions where the 
most serious of crimes have been and are still being committed. More 
information can be found about IRfJ at www.irfj.org

Interactive Radio for Justice partners with the US based NGO Insight 
Collaborative for the administration of its funding. Insight Collaborative 
helps governments, non-governmental organizations, charities, non-profits, 
small companies, individuals and otherwise underserved populations manage 
conflict more effectively. Insight Collaborative also provides, as with 
Interactive Radio for Justice, structural support and collaboration for the 
realization of like-minded and complimentary projects. More information 
about Insight Collaborative can be found on www.insightcollaborative.org.
