    Die EU-Mitgliedstaaten beteiligen sich immer häufiger an Maßnahmen des Grenzmanagements auf hoher See, die in oder in Zusammenarbeit mit Drittländern und an den EU Grenzen stattfinden. Derartige Maßnahmen bergen die Gefahr, gegen den Grundsatz der Nichtzurückweisung zu verstoßen. Dieser Eckpfeiler des internationalen Rechtsrahmens für den Schutz von Flüchtlingen verbietet die Rückführung von Personen in ein Land, in dem ihnen Verfolgung droht. Die vorliegenden Leitlinien enthalten konkrete Vorschläge, wie das Risiko der Zurückweisung in solchen Situationen verringert werden kann – ein praktisches Instrument, das unter Mitwirkung von ExpertInnen anlässlich eines Treffens in Wien im März 2016 entwickelt wurde.

Facial recognition technology (FRT) makes it possible to compare digital facial images to determine whether they are of the same person. Comparing footage obtained from video cameras (CCTV) with images in databases is referred to as ‘live facial recognition technology’. Examples of national law enforcement authorities in the EU using such technology are sparse – but several are testing its potential. This paper therefore looks at the fundamental rights implications of relying on live FRT, focusing on its use for law enforcement and border-management purposes.

EU Member States are increasingly involved in border management activities on the high seas, within – or i cooperation with – third countries, and at the EU’s borders. Such activities entail risks of violating the principle of non-refoulement, the cornerstone of the international legal regime for the protection of refugees, which prohibits returning individuals to a risk of persecution. This report aims to encourage fundamental-rights compliant approaches to border management, including by highlighting potential grey areas.
