Abstract

Collaborative Research aimed at improving language interpretation for Minors (i.e. persons under 18 years old) is underway at the Centre for Translation and Interpreting Studies in Scotland (CTISS) Heriot-Watt University and at Abertay University, Dundee in the context of the CO-Minor-IN/QUEST (Collaboration on Interpreter-Mediated Investigative Questioning of Minors) project. Researchers are examining interviewing and interpreting and practices for this group across five jurisdictions including Belgium, France, Hungary, Italy, Scotland and The Netherlands. Funded by EU DG Criminal Justice, this research is part of a European drive to assist implementation of the right to interpretation and translation in criminal proceedings as enshrined in the EU Directive 2010/64/EU. This came into force in October 2010.
