Aristotle University of Thessaloniki for IATE: Migration

thessaloniki for iate

Short presentation of the project

The aim of this project was to both initiate MA students to terminology work and to contribute to the IATE term-base with well-documented and reliable terms. For this purpose, a number of textual resources and access to internal IATE were offered to us by TermCoord. For each term, members of the team had to provide a solid definition and context in both English and Greek language. Our final results were also discussed with experts in the field of migration laws and social anthropology.
