TEPSA Brief: “Assessing the role of human rights in the Recast EU Regulation on dual-use items”, Eleonora Di Franco

TEPSA is happy to present its new policy brief “Assessing the role of human rights in the Recast EU Regulation on dual-use items”, written by Eleonora Di Franco, Lecturer and PhD candidate in European Law at Maastricht University.

Abstract:

A review of the EU’s Recast Regulation on dual-use items shows rising concern for the misuse of cyber-surveillance technologies (e.g., artificial intelligence, emerging technologies) by third countries, while also recognising the need to promote R&D competitiveness. This policy Brief analyses the balance struck between the economy, technological innovation, and human rights in the Recast, focusing on its potential for promoting human rights in export controls.
