Privacy, ethical, regulatory and social no-gate crossing point solutions acceptance

Objective

The increasing number of travellerscrossing European borders is putting a mounting pressure on the everyday handling of border checks. Coping with limited resources, border control authorities have to perform a higher number of checks on travellers, while at the same time maintaining national security. Consequently, the experience of both European and third country travellersis deteriorating, due to the extra time they have to spend at the border crossing points. In that sense, flexible, automated and scalable no-gate crossing solutions may offer an effective support to border control authorities, to make border checks faster and more efficient. Nevertheless, the intensive use of these technologies bears the risk of infringing individuals’ rights and freedoms, including privacy and personal data protection. Therefore, a thorough assessment of no-gate crossing point solutions, from asocial acceptance, ethical and legalperspective, is required prior to their implementation. PERSONA (Privacy, Ethical, Regulatory, and SOcial No-gate crossing point solutions Acceptance) project’s main goal is to design and establish an integrated impact assessment method (IAM PERSONA) to appropriately evaluate the impacts of no-gate crossing point solutions, taking into account social acceptance, ethical and legal requirements, to ensure that these technologies meet the expectations of public authorities and travellers. The main outcome of the project will be a handbook, available in open access, that will provide guidance inorder to drive the innovation and deployment of future no-gate crossing point solutions by industry and border authorities, while maintaining their societal acceptance
