The ChiLLS conference offers insight into the matter of interpreter-mediated interaction with minors in legal proceedings. The project on which this conference reports, is strongly built around the perspective and participation of the children. A novelty in this field of research. Child participation is also reflected in the conference programme: A team of child ambassadors will be presenting the views of minors that shared their experiences with interpreter mediated encounters. We find this paramount. Children are vulnerable and have special needs and rights in relation to interpreting. The project team and presenters are excellent researchers and professionals, that come with a wealth of field-experience on the specific problematic that ChiLLS puts on the map. Throughout the conference, they will talk you through the specificities of interpreter-mediated encounters with minors, and will offer practical tools and solutions to navigate those encounters in your professionals lives.


The ChiLLS (Children in Legal Language Settings) Conference will take place on Monday 19 October and Tuesday 20 October 2020

The language of the conference will be English. Interpretation will be provided into Dutch, French, Italian and Hungarian.
