The interactional dynamics of multilingualism and translanguaging in the Belgian asylum procedure

Begin - Einde 
2011 - 2018 (afgewerkt)



This project investigates the ways in which linguistic diversity, multilingualism and translanguaging are institutionally managed in the Belgian asylum procedure. Drawing on linguistic-ethnographic data, this study (a) analyses language ideological issues related to competing forms of multilingualism, with a particular focus on interpreting practice and LADO applications and (b) explores how the observed interactional dynamics may affect the legal-institutional construction of evidence and identity in asylum cases.
