The Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) is hosting the CIUTI International Conference for the first time in Lima and Latin America in 2022. The conference will run from Friday 16 September 2022 to Saturday 17 September 2022.
CIUTI gathers a group of universities distinguished for their outstanding quality in research and translation and interpreting training.
Conference theme: National and regional processes designed to ensure access to information and public services leverage translation and interpreting (T&I) to promote citizens’ rights. The state’s fight against marginalization and poverty and promotion of fundamental rights is continually buffeted by constant tension between both able-bodied and disabled citizens, and their economic activities as these citizens seek access to information, public services, and equality in all its forms. Language services are fundamental to the promotion of human rights in all of these scenarios, even though these services can also be a potential source of inequality.
