Migration sector - needs and capacity assessment survey

0%
The use of data and new technologies are driving a revolution in immigration enforcement, which might have both positive and negative impact on the the people involved in the migration process. 

Increasingly every interaction that refugees, asylum seekers and migrants have with a third-party, be it humanitarian or governments agencies, requires the processing of their personal data. The use of this data and new technologies are driving a revolution in immigration enforcement, and affected people are going to be at greater risk.

Privacy International and Open Rights Group created this survey to gather insights into your understanding of technologies and data governance, in order to assist interested organisations in responding to the impact that technologies can have on your sector.

The research is anonymous but if you are interested in potential collaboration with us and participation in events, please provide the name of the organisation and contact details. Your answers will help us shape our future activities, workshops, trainings with the migration sector.

ORG and PI will only use your details for the purpose of staying in touch and following up with you on our work on data exploitation and surveillance in immigration enforcement and protecting the rights of migrants. We won’t share your details with any third parties. This survey uses informed consent as its legal basis for processing of any personal data, and you can withdraw this consent at anytime by contacting us.
