WHAT IS CULTURAL EXPERTISE?

Cultural expertise is an emergent concept in the social sciences to indicate the special knowledge deployed by experts of laws and cultures for assisting decision-making authorities in conflict resolution and the ascertainment of rights, with information on the socio-legal backgrounds of facts and persons involved.

WHAT WE DO

At EURO-EXPERT we are developing and scrutinising the new socio-legal concept of cultural expertise for studying its use and impact in Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. We collect both quantitative and qualitative data for answering the following question: Cultural Expertise in Europe: What is it useful for?
Our objectives are: 1) mapping cultural expertise in-court and out-of-court; 2) creating a toolkit for measuring the impact of cultural expertise; 3) establishing an Open Access searchable database for the consultation of cases and expert reports including cultural expertise; 4) designing a teaching and learning module and training components; and 5) formulating policy-making guidelines which include tested solutions for a sustainable inclusiveness in Europe.

Funders

Cultural Expertise in Europe: What is it useful for? (EURO-EXPERT), Consolidator Grant project n. 681814 is funded by the European Research Council.
