Objectives

By bringing together law and language research and practice in the three international workshops the project will contribute towards more reliable and effective asylum decision-making in the UK and internationally:

i)  to facilitate a movement from multidisciplinary to interdisciplinary understandings of how stakeholders approach questions of language and silence in the asylum process.

ii)  to develop a clearer and more comprehensive analysis of the challenges posed by interpretation, language and translation in the asylum process;

iii)  to produce a fuller account of tools and practice in this area;

iv)  to establish a benchmark set of guidelines documenting the key issues at the heart of matters of language and silence in the asylum process.
