How the EU Interoperability Framework Will Affect the European Migration Space
With its European Interoperability Framework (EIF) adopted in 2019, the European Union seeks to expand the interoperability of various databases, particularly those of administrations and border systems. The interconnection project also affects databases that have not been linked before and that contain information on migration, asylum and crime, and provides for a person-based centralized search and filter function. In this briefing, Alberto Tagliapietra provides background information on interoperability and the status of the EU project, and asks what consequences the project has for individual mobility and digital rights in the EU and at its borders. The publication is part of the "Dialogue on Tech and Migration, DoT.Mig." of the Migration Strategy Group, a joint initiative of the Robert Bosch Stiftung, the Bertelsmann Stiftung and the German Marshall Fund.
