Research project

Un-owned personal data – Interoperable EU borders and transitioning rights

The project investigates whether advanced technologies, inherent in interoperable information systems in the Area of Freedom Security and Justice (AFSJ), undermine the fundamental rights of third-country nationals, including asylum seekers.

This project has received funding via the EUI Research Council call 2018.

Given the nature of digital data, which are intangible and un-territorial, third-country nationals exist in a transitioning status beyond borders (e.g., asylum seeker to EU citizen) and across different legal procedures (e.g., migrant to suspect).

The aim of this project was to understand the scope of interoperability in the AFSJ in relation to transitioning rights, in order to ultimately design an integrated model of interoperable justice encompassing different layers of accountability and liability.
