Defining accountability for micromanagement practices in the digital age: the case of rewarding citizens’ behavior through digital applications

Cristina’s research focuses on the interplay between technological systems used by public administration and fundamental rights, with a particular zoom on Europe. Her research delves into topics that range from the use of human rights as a framework to assess the negative implications of Artificial Intelligence systems to the idea of new rights in the digital. Within the project, her PhD thesis focuses on unexplored practices involving the use of digital systems by public administration to influence the behavior of citizens. She investigates what accountability issues are raised by the use of these systems and how these issues, and thus accountability for wrongs occurring in this context, can be improved.
