Handbook for Interpreting in Asylum Procedures

October 12, 2018

Dear Members,

Around the world, interpreters are called upon to work with asylum seekers and refugees, and one of the requests WASLI frequently receives is for information about training. The United Nations has this excellent resource, and while it is not specific to signed language interpreters, we want to share it with you as a very helpful resource.  We encourage you to review the material and consider it as you are creating local or national training to work Deaf people in these circumstances.

Warm regards

Deb on behalf of the
WASLI Board of Directors
