Maribel del Pozo Triviño (University of Vigo): The SOS-VICS project, a step forward towards guaranteeing the right of gender-based violence victims and survivors to understand and be understood
Violence against women is a type of gender-based discrimination and a violation of human rights suffered by many women all over the world. (In)migrant women and girls who do not speak the language of the host country represent a specially vulnerable group due to the social, cultural and linguistic barriers that they have to overcome.
In order to guarantee the right of (in)migrant victims and survivors to information and justice, Governments have the obligation to guarantee their right to understand and be understood. That obligation includes the provision of quality translation and interpreting services, as provided for in Directive 2010/64/EU on the right to interpretation and translation in criminal proceedings and Directive 2012/29/EU establishing minimum standards on the rights, support and protection of victims of crime.
This talk will review international and EU legislation on the right of gender violence victims and survivors to understand and be understood and will analyze the best ways to improve communication between service providers and victims through well trained interpreters in the light of the recent research carried out by the EU co-funded project Speak Out for Support (SOS-VICS).
