Summary This chapter focuses on the area of language and law and applies linguistic methods of analysis to interviewing and cross-cultural questioning in the Australian Administrative Appeals Tribunal - Migration and Refugee Division (hereafter referred to the AAT Refugee Division). In the AAT Refugee Division interviewing is used "to elicit accurate and reliable evidence when reviewing applications for refugee status" (Findling & Heydon 2016, p. 19). This topic is relevant to how forensic linguistic methods are used in the decision-making processes of refugees. This chapter brings together these two research themes to explore the appropriateness of narrative-based questioning in the cross-linguistic settings of the Australian refugee tribunal. Overall the chapter aims to provide researchers and policy makers with a framework within which it is possible to implement best practice questioning in refugee tribunals and other relevant cross-cultural settings.
