dc.description.abstractFor a long time, radio-loud Broad Absorption Line Quasars (BAL QSOs) were thought to be extremely rare objects. The absorbing troughs seen in their optical spectra are due to strong winds which probably have their origin within the inner region of the AGN, as a result of the accretion processes. Their radio emission constitutes an additional diagnostic tool which is successfully contributing new perspectives and raise new questions, with the aim to enrich our understanding of the BAL phenomenon. In this contribution, we introduce a first characterisation of the radio-loud BAL QSO population. Radio continuum spectra have been collected for a sample of 15 objects, which we present together with their radio polarisation properties. VLA maps in A configuration confirm the compactness of these objects at di erent frequencies up to 43 GHz, yielding projected linear sizes below 1 kpc. We note that many of their radio properties are common to the population of young radio-sources, like Compact Steep Spectrum (CSS) or Gigahertz- Peaked Spectrum (GPS) sources.es_ES
