Language Obligations of the Police
This doctoral project examines police obligations regarding the use of foreign languages in a pluralized and increasingly multilingual society. Based on the above considerations, this dissertation examines the distribution of ‘language risk’ in preventive police action and its effects on fundamental rights. The potential of recent technological developments and the actual practices of the police in dealing with non-German speakers are considered. Forming part of a broader interdisciplinary research project ‘ZuRecht – Die Polizei in der offenen Gesellschaft’, this project relies principally on doctrinal analysis and statutory interpretation, as well as empirical methods for dealing with linguistic differences.
