Abstract

Facial recognition is a rapidly evolving technology with significant intrusive potential that threatens anonymity, substantive equality, privacy and human rights more broadly. This report seeks to document how facial recognition systems are being adopted in border control contexts around the world and to provide an overview of considerations that should govern assessment of their impact should they be adopted.
