LINGOS aims to bring together languages and international relations specialists, international NGOs and professional interpreters in order to develop an interdisciplinary research agenda which is of specific relevance to the language-related challenges which NGOs face, and to the role which local language/cultural intermediaries play in danger zones.
Its objectives are:
- to bring the four groups together in a structured preparatory workshop
- to raise awareness within existing relevant networks of the challenges NGOs face in this area
- to develop a research agenda in a ‘Building Future Projects’ event
- to argue for the salience of this research agenda in the wider NGO world, and with relevant government and European agencies.
