HOMELAND SECURITY, BIOMETRIC IDENTIFICATION AND PERSONAL DETECTION ETHICS

HOMELAND SECURITY, BIOMETRIC IDENTIFICATION AND PERSONAL DETECTION ETHICS

Objective

HIDE (HOMELAND SECURITY, BIOMETRIC IDENTIFICATION & PERSONAL DETECTION ETHICS) is a 36 month coordination action that aims to create a PANEUROPEAN DIALOGUE PLATFORM ON ETHICS AND GOVERNANCE OF PERSONAL DETECTION TECHNOLOGIES AND BIOMETRICS. THREE KEY IDEAS LED THE CONSORTIUM TO PREPARE THE HIDE PROJECT: ** Ongoing societal concerns about the use of biometrics and personal detection technologies for improving European security are legitimate. Research focusing on ethical, privacy and normative challenges posed by these technologies in the context of EU 27 is needed. **The ethical aspects of security technologies and the issue of data protection cannot be any longer addressed in the context of a particular technology alone. Research is needed with a more comprehensive approach to the continuum between personal detection, authentication and identification. **International controversies can be faced by promoting structured conversation. These controversies are often based on diverse interpretations of shared principles (e.g., proportionality principle, right to privacy, right to security, etc.). Structured conversation may allow a better understanding of others’ perspectives and commits all parties to dialogue. HIDE aims to create the best environment where this dialogue is possible and may progress.
