Rule of Law, Legitimacy and Effective COVID-19 Control Technologies

Finished Project

While concerns over privacy, impinging bias and data protection violations of mobile applications used in managing the COVID-19 pandemic are prevalent, other issues of authority/legitimacy and sustainability post-pandemic have received little attention.

Expanding on the foundational work of the CAIDG, BIICL and TUM concerning human rights and rule of law implications, this project aims to produce a systematic overview of challenges posed by specific mobile applications that can be continuously updated and accessible to policy makers. A second goal is to build a methodology to assess publicly contentious control technologies against international rule of law standardisation, and human rights obligations, for operational compliance.
