Case Study Pitch

Prof. Naue is author of InsSciDE case study n°6.2, Migration and border management. Read the pitch for this case study here.

This pitch outlines how case study 6.2 seeks an understanding of how diplomats, foreign policy experts, and home affairs experts perceive the application of biometric technologies in the context of securing the Schengen boundaries – on national level, European Union (EU) level, and in domestic cooperation between home affairs and foreign affairs. Key quote: We will investigate the way in which way scientific collaboration and policy learning takes place, and which role bioinformation such as DNA and fingerprints is given.
