Start – 2018 | End – 2024 Duration – 6 ans

Case study

In the first year of the project, a thorough analysis of one of the identified flagship projects, INDIGO, is planned. This project is currently conducted by the Dutch Immigration Service.Inventories

The Subproject aims to compile an inventory of common practices, and of technological decision support tools used by legal authorities, as well as those that are still under development. A particular emphasis will be placed on how automated decision support tools influence the individuals who are the object of the decisions, and their willingness to accept those decisions.

The second inventory will list examples of best practice of conflict prevention in legal organizations.
