Understanding Autonomy

Multilingual podcast series on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Second Statute of Autonomy

Autonomy and the protection of minorities are omnipresent in the everyday life of South Tyroleans. However, people living in South Tyrol often do not consciously perceive the significance that South Tyrol’s autonomy and the protection of minorities hold for each individual and for society as a whole. “Understanding Autonomy”, a multilingual podcast series available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and all other popular podcast platforms, pursues precisely this goal: to learn to understand autonomy. Experts who deal with the topic of autonomy in different fields provide insights into specific issues of South Tyrolean autonomy.

The Autonomous Province of Bozen/Bolzano and the Center for Autonomy Experience of Eurac Research have planned a total of ten episodes on various topics. “The first episode is about the basic question of what autonomy actually is,” explains the head of the Center for Autonomy Experience, Marc Röggla. “In the further course, the historical background or the legal basis of South Tyrol autonomy will be examined. The role of autonomy for South Tyrol’s youth and language groups will also be in focus.”

The podcaster of “Understanding Autonomy” is the journalist Anita Rossi. Nadia Rungger takes on this role in the Ladin episode. The podcast was produced in the studio of Radio Grüne Welle.
