I am opening two shapefiles in QGIS 2.18 and then perform a v.overlay from the GRASS toolbox. The shapefile contains attributes with characters that need Utf-8 to display all the characters correctly. However, when I use v.overlay, the algorithm tries to convert all the characters to latin-1 which does not work. A lot of characters are converted to ?.

How do I tell GRASS, when used from QGIS, to use utf-8?
