    Digital Privacy Perceptions of Asylum Seekers in Germany – An Empirical Study about Smartphone Usage during the Flight
    Proceedings of the ACM: Human Computer Interaction (PACM): Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing ;5(CSCW2). doi:10.1145/3479526
    [BibTeX] [Abstract]

    Since 2015, an increased number of asylum seekers is coming to Europe. These migration movements increas-ingly rely on digital infrastructure, such as mobile internet access and online services, in order to reach theirtargeted destination countries. Asylum seekers often use smartphones for information and communicationpurposes. Even though there are many positive aspects in the use of such technologies, researchers have toconsider the perceived risks of this specific user group. This work aims at investigating the use of mobileinformation technologies by asylum seekers during their flight, especially taking privacy into account. Thus, itexamines asylum seekers’ digital privacy perceptions and identifies privacy protection behaviors by conductinga qualitative interview study with 14 asylum seekers who applied for asylum in Germany. The results showthat asylum seekers are often aware of the various risks deriving from the use of smartphones and ICT, suchas surveillance and persecution by state or non-state actors as well as extortion by criminals. Based on this,this work furthermore outlines different strategies used to manage these risks. Since the lack of privacy andtrust leads to avoidance behavior, the insights of this study provide valuable information for the design ofassistance apps and collaboration platforms, which appropriately address the specific needs for digital privacyin the context of flight, or for the conception of privacy-enhancing technologies helping to achieve this.

    The Role of Privacy in Digitalization – Analysing the German Farmers‘ Perspective
    Proceedings on Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PoPETs) ;2021(3).
    [BibTeX] [Abstract] [Download PDF]

    Technological progress can disrupt domains and change the way we work and collaborate. This paper presents a qualitative study with 52 German farmers that investigates the impact of the ongoing digitalization process in agriculture and discusses the implications for privacy research. As in other domains, the introduction of digital tools and services leads to the data itself becoming a resource. Sharing this data with products along the supply chain is favored by retailers and consumers, who benefit from traceability through transparency. However, transparency can pose a privacy risk. Having insight into the business data of others along the supply chain provides an advantage in terms of market position. This is particularly true in agriculture, where there is already a significant imbalance of power between actors. A multitude of small and medium-sized farming businesses are opposed by large upstream and downstream players that drive technological innovation. Further weakening the market position of farmers could lead to severe consequences for the entire sector. We found that on the one hand, privacy behaviors are affected by adoption of digitalization, and on the other hand, privacy itself influences adoption of digital tools. Our study sheds light on the emerging challenges for farmers and the role of privacy in the process of digitalization in agriculture.
