FRA takes part in borders and ID conference

FRA took part in the conference ID@Borders & Future of Travel Conference 2022.

It highlighted the increasing digitalisation of identity management.

FRA’s presentation focused on the fundamental rights implications of the use of biometric technology in border control.

FRA also took part in the closing panel. It highlighted that biometric identification is used to establish identity in the context of decisions that impact people lives. It is therefore important to pay attention to plausible arguments presented by people, in case of inaccurate biometric matches.

The Biometrics Institute organised the event. It took place from 26 to 27 April.
