About the product

This publication focuses on the impact of the rapid expansion in the use of biometric systems in migration management on the rights of individuals. It seeks to highlight legal issues for consideration in implementing such systems, taking as the starting point that the security interests of the state and the rights of the individual are not, and should not be, mutually exclusive.
