Promoting Access to Justice for Speakers of Indigenous Languages in Peru


The project aims to contribute to the promotion of access to justice for speakers of indigenous languages in Peru. During the two-year project 1) a local network will be set up in Peru, consisting of academic and societal stakeholders in the field of defense of linguistic and indigenous rights regarding the access to justice. The network will be embedded in an international North/South/South triangulation linking Peru, Mexico and Belgium/Europe with the objective to 2) exchange and transfer experience from Mexico and Belgium/Europe in the field of training of interpreters and defense of linguistic rights in multilingual contexts that will be adapted to the Peruvian situation. The setting up of the network and transfer of North/South/South expertise will be achieved through a four semester planning of visits, meetings and workshops in Peru, Mexico and Belgium. The project will lay the basis for the future implementation of a diploma on legal interpreting for speakers of indigenous languages in Peru.
