EXCHANGE – Forensic Geneticists and the Transnational Exchange of DNA data in the EU: Engaging Science with Social Control, Citizenship and Democracy

Coord.: Dr. Helena Machado

EXCHANGE aims to study the societal, cultural and political implications of the uses of DNA databases in surveillance systems in the EU. EU Law (Prüm Decision, 2008) obliges all Member States to create the conditions for the reciprocal automated searching and comparison of information on DNA data for the purpose of combating cross-border crime, terrorism and illegal immigration.

The project’s key objectives are: 1. Provide a general picture of the implementation of technological systems for the transnational exchange of DNA data between Member States. 2. Develop in-depth knowledge of forensic geneticists’ and other stakeholders, by resorting to interviews, ethnographic observation and analysis of criminal cases; 3. Conduct a comparative study involving the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal and the UK.

1. A completed MA degree in a field of SSH, in a domain relevant to the project such as Sociology, Anthropology, Criminology, Science and Technology Studies, Political Science, Philosophy, Law or International Relations (25%);
