Press release -

EASO convene meeting of asylum experts in Brussels

EASO wishes to promote the exchange of information between EASO and the civil society. To facilitate pooling of knowledge, EASO has set up a Consultative Forum. Asylum is a multi-faceted phenomenon. An important ambition is to gather different areas of expertise and experience. A Plenary Meeting is held annually. November 17, the Plenary Meeting will take place in Brussels.

Verified acknowledges the value of both a multi-disciplinary approach and a two-way dialogue and is happy to contribute to and learn from the Consultative Forum. The focus of Verified is to use dialect attribution to corroborate the residential history of a claimant, but this practice is obviously intertwined with other procedures. Roderick Martin will represent Verified and anyone interested to set up a separate meeting is encouraged to make contact.

Verified provides expert testimony regarding linguistic behaviour, in particular relating to an individual´s linguistic background. These services are required by police, migration authorities and immigration attorneys for trials in court. We also assist non governmental organisations.

Verified employs a dozen of linguists, trained in areas such as creole languages, dialectology, interview technique and forensic phonetics.

Verified has conducted in excess of 24.000 analyses. The use of the same rigorous and well-defined methodology in each case ensures that analysis reports can be assessed and used in a safe and easy way, whether that be during an investigation or in court.

Equally indispensable for a clear and reliable result is the active language competency of a native speaker. To meet this requirement, Verified maintains a network of around 240 native speakers with training in auditory analysis to cover about 100 combinations of linguistic varieties and regions.
