DETECTER Project

About DETECTER

DETECTER (Detection Technologies, Counter-Terrorism, Ethics, and Human Rights) is a three-year Collaborative Research Project under the European Union Framework 7 Security programme which focuses on detection technologies, counter-terrorism, ethics and human rights.

The project partners consist of researchers at the following institutions: Abo Academy University (Finland); University of Birmingham (UK); Danish Institute for Human Rights; European University Institute (Italy); the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights; University of Zurich (Switzerland); and the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, Lund (Sweden). The project benefits greatly from the involvement of the UN Special Rapporteur on Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights, Professor Martin Scheinin (European University Institute, Florence), whose mandate has been a focal point of previous work by some of the collaborators. Coordinator and primary administrator of the project is the University of Birmingham, represented by Professor Tom Sorell of the Centre for the Study of Global Ethics.
