Abstract

This book contains the proceedings of a conference that was held as part of an EU Commission DG Justice and Home Affairs funded Grotius Project (Grotius project 2001/GRP/015). One of the aims of the treaty of Amsterdam is to create an area of freedom, security and justice within the European Union. An essential pre-requisite to achieving that aim is reliable communication, for the quality of information and communication on which they are based. This project builds upon the foundations and recommendations of a first Grotius project on legal interpreting and translation: Grotius project 98/GR/131 #Aequitas: access to justice across language and culture in the EU#. The outcomes of both projects are intended to apply to any branch of the legal services: i.e. to judges, lawyers, police and probation officers, immigration and asylum services, legal interpreters and translators, etc., given that the legal process is made up of a series of processes carried out by different legal agencies and that the integrity of each process affects the integrity of the whole.
