MEDIA REVIEWS

"Explore the impact of interpreter mediation on police investigative interviews and the challenges that arise for those involved, with a view to recommending strategies towards a more effective handling of these. ... Nakane's monograph sets out to approach the interpreter-mediated suspect interview as tripartite interaction taking place in a specific institutional context. ... the monograph by Nakane is directed primarily at researchers specialised in exploring institutional discourse." (Isabelle Perez, Interpreting, Vol. 18 (1), 2016)
