A program with in depth views on ethnic and religious minorities in Denmark

Bashy’s Corner

Bashy’s Corner is a program that provides respectful yet in depth views on various topics concerning ethnic and religious minorities in Denmark. We take up issues which mainstream media often neglects or does not want to take up.

We invite guests from a wide section of Danish society, to discuss cultures, politics, socio-economic issues, integration, official policies and much more.

The reason why we produce programs in English language is that in the greater Copenhagen area, there live nearly 1.5 million people. Among them, a sizeable number speak English in their daily life, for example: diplomats, foreign students, expatriates, Green Card holders, nannies and au pairs as well as a large number of ethnic and religious minorities who are settled in Denmark. We wish to reach them with the message of involvement, sense of belonging and participation.

The program is non-party political and neutral in its approach to issues but always keep human rights in the center.
