The interpreter’s performance – an uncertain destination? : A qualitative study of interrogators experienced legal certainty in using interpreter at police interrogations (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka hur förhörsledare inom Polisens olika avdelningar upplevde rättssäkerheten i att använda sig av tolk vid förhör. Materialet till studien insamlades genom sex kvalitativa, semistrukturerade intervjuer med förhörsledare som hade erfarenhet av förhör där tolk medverkat. Resultatet framställdes genom en kvalitativ innehållsanalys. Tidigare forskning inom det aktuella ämnet, kommunikationsteorin samt Mertons teori om strain låg till grund för analysen av intervjumaterialet. Resultatet visade att intervjupersonernas upplevelser var att rättssäkerheten påverkas vid polisförhör där tolk medverkar. Vidare kunde vi härleda detta till fem olika aspekter. Dessa tematiserades till tolkens roll i förhörsammanhanget, tolkens sätt att närvara, tolkens auktorisation, kommunikationsbrister samt tolkens bakgrund.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine whether interrogators within the various police departments experienced legal certainty in using interpreter at interrogation. The material for the study was collected through six qualitative, semi-structured interviews with interrogators who had experience in interrogation where interpreter participated. The result was presented through a qualitative content analysis. Previous research within the current subject, communication theory and Merton's theory of strain formed the basis for the analysis of the interview material. The results showed that the experiences of the interviewees were that legal certainty is affected by police interrogations where an interpreter participates. Furthermore, we could deduce this into five different aspects. These were thematised to the interpreter's role in the interrogation context, the interpreter's way of attending, the interpretation of the interpreter, the lack of communication, and the background of the interpreter.
