On February 2022 a study started up on factors potentially affecting social acceptance of risk and threat analysis methodologies applied to international migration. Four main areas are investigated: the border control policies and practices; the protection of human rights in the management of migration; the role, benefits, and critical issues related to risk analysis methodologies; the social acceptance of the technologies used to support risk analysis, with special reference to those CRiTERIA is intended to develop. The first months of activity were devoted to carrying out a literature review to identify the main problematic issues related to the use of these methodologies. The study is conducted by a K&I research team, made up of Luciano d’Andrea, Alfonso Alfonsi, Federico Marta, and Paolo Signore in the framework of the project WP4, led by the University of Groningen.
