Project description

English EN

Data-driven border security

In today’s digital age, data is collected and used for border security, but the entire process presents many political and ethical implications. The EU-funded SECURITY FLOWS project will propose an innovative theorisation of the epistemic impacts of datafication as generating both learning and ignorance. It will also trace the practical implications of datafication by 'following the data' along the migration routes in the Mediterranean. Politically, it will show how data shapes actors’ decision-making. Ethically, it aims to understand how datafication affects the rights of both citizens and non-citizens.
