Interpreting for Refugees: Contexts, Practices and Ethics

This course provides an interactive learning opportunity for humanitarian interpreters, and also their trainers and service providers, to support their work with refugees and asylum seekers. The course will also be of interest to learners outside of the professional community of interpreters, for example to humanitarian workers and intercultural mediators. Students interested in interpretation and mediation who aspire to work for organisations that support refugees will also find useful information and points for reflection.

The course has been developed by academics and practitioners at the University of Glasgow with the support of the Erasmus+ Programme funding from the European Union and the Inter4Ref project led by an international team of partners from National Centre for Social Research (EKKE), Greece; University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (UNIMORE), Italy; Centre for Migration Studies and Intercultural Relations (CEMyRI) at University of Almeria (UAL), Spain; University of Glasgow (UGLA), United Kingdom and EOPPEP National Organisation for Certification & Vocational Guidance, Greece.
