International scientists visiting the ICWC

In June, Professor Kayoko Takeda from the College of Intercultural Communication at Rikkyo University, Tokyo was a guest at the ICWC for 5 days; Associated Professor Gustavo Emilio Cote Barco from the Pontifica Universidad Javeriana is currently at the centre until mid-July for research purposes.


Prof. Kayoko Takeda teaches translation and interpreting at the Rikkyo University in Tokyo, Japan. Her main fields of research are: Socio-cultural aspects of translation and interpreting, the history of translation and interpreting sciences, and technologies used in these activities. In a major research project, Prof. Takeda dealt with the socio-political aspects of interpreting at the International Military Tribunal for the Far East (IMTFE). At the ICWC, she had the opportunity to examine trial records of cases in which translators and interpreters were among the defendants. In various proceedings, interpreters were classified as accomplices because of their work.

Dr. Gustavo Cote Barco is a jurist at the Pontifical University of Xaveriana in Bogota, Colombia. He received his doctorate from the Georg-August-University in Göttingen in 2017. His doctoral thesis on the principle of legality in international criminal law was supervised by Prof. Kai Ambos. Dr. Cote Barco is currently working on comparative law analyses in criminal law. This also includes the investigation of the problem of "superior responsibility in international criminal law", to which he mainly devotes himself at the ICWC.
