Biometric Border Worlds

Biometric Border Worlds

Project period: July 2016 to December 2019

The collaborative research project 'Biometric Border Worlds' was initiated in July 2016, funded by the VELUX FOUNDATIONS. On the one hand, it explored the epistemological foundations, practical applications and social implications of biometric technologies in the context of migration. On the other hand, it investigated migrants’ experiences, knowledge and (attempted) circumvention of biometric technologies, and how this may have influenced further technological development.
