The project (September 2020 - July 2022) aims to produce a systematic overview of challenges posed by specific mobile applications that can be continuously updated and are accessible to policy makers, together with a methodology to assess publicly contentious control technologies against international Rule of Law standards, and human rights obligations.
The research cooperation between the Munich Center for Technology in Society (TUM) , the Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Data Governance (CAIDG) at the Singapore Management University and the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) builds upon the extensive experiences of the three institutions advising on regulation and governance with distinctly legal dimensions, now in settings of global crises.
BIICL provides informed, independent and practical legal ideas for a global community. Its high quality and respected work involves analysis and debate about contemporary issues on every continent, from its base in the heart of London's energetic and multicultural legal network.
