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. 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). Our aim is 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.

Expected results:

– Stakeholders’ meeting (Month 9); D.1.2 Blog post (Month 10)
– Model Rules (Month 10)
– Working paper on the un-ownability of data and third-country nationals’ fundamental rights. (Month 12)
– Working paper on law enforcement access to interoperable systems of multiple purposes. (Month 12)
– Project report (Month 12)
