Surveillance: Ethical Issues, Legal Limitations, and Efficiency


SURVEILLE is a cutting-edge and cross-disciplinary collaborative research project funded by the European Commission analyzing the ethical issues, legal limitations and efficiency of the use of surveillance technologies for the prevention, investigation and prosecution of serious crime.

SURVEILLE seeks close interaction with other projects funded under FP7, and through its Advisory Service directed towards technology developers to sensitize them to issues of ethics and fundamental rights that arise, and to help them to find constructive solutions to addressing nascent security issues.

COORDINATOR: Martin Scheinin, European University Institute
