Abstract

With the realization that migrants rely on connectivity for multiple purposes, including to access information and services, many private and public initiatives started working on developing ICT tools to assist migrants to integrate into their new society. At the same time different countries have enacted legislation that allows the confiscation of asylum seekers’ phones and examination of the data therein to confirm their narratives. To mitigate these and other risks, we argue that an expanded data protection impact assessment, analyzing not only the impacts related to data protection, but also to the specific situation of migrants, should be conducted at the outset of any technology development project to influence the development of safe and reliable ICT tools for this target population. Not grounbreaking, but respectful and with some bonus (practical examples)
