Abstract
The article discusses the relationship between third sector broadcasting (TSB) and International Human Rights Law (IHRL). The article aims to show that there are legal obligations derived from IHRL which require States to contemplate TSB in their broadcasting policy, and, to demonstrate that TSB has a significant potential to contribute to the realization of IHRL goals. Specific issues discussed include how Freedom of Religion requires States to provide means of access to the airwaves for religious groups and how TSB can be used as an affirmative action measure to increase the participation of members of traditionally disadvantaged groups in the media.

Abstract
This report is a qualitative case study that focuses on Australia’s community radio audiences. Building upon the first study of Australia’s community radio audiences, Community Media Matters, it looks at the reasons why Asian youths in Melbourne who are also volunteers in community radio tune in to Asian community radio programs on a regular basis. In the context of diaspora studies and media reception theories, this report argues that these programs aid Asian youths in maintaining their homeland cultures. It demonstrates how Asian community radio essentially assists this demographic in socialising with people of various ethnicities and encourages them to feel a sense of belonging in Australia, in line with the sector’s aims of fostering multiculturalism in a globalised world.
