The Rights, Design and Engineering Network

fingerprint on a digital picture of the globe


The Rights, Design and Engineering network will investigate the question of what happens to fundamental rights and freedoms (such as privacy and dignity) as these become matters of engineering and design to be built into emerging ICT infrastructures.
The network will engage with and study such processes in several domains.The research questions will be discussed and developed into research proposals in interdisciplinary groups including practitioners from philosophy, social science, law, engineering, software design, as well as representatives of different professions using and operating the ICT systems.
