Objective 4: Recognising Ethical, Moral and Legal Concerns

This objective is primarily focused on mapping out the relevant legal, ethical, moral and socio-economic challenges, concerns and targets for PROPHETS. It is designed to ensure that the behavioural case studies are anchored to real world EU strategic concerns, including both the legal and judicial levels, but also of the wider public, whose perceptions of contemporary cybercrime via Eurobarometer surveys and other relevant enquires reveal large knowledge and awareness deficiencies. The objectives will aim to carry out the following activities:

  • Examine and validate that existing de-radicalisation or governmental strategies aren't undermining and exacerbating the problem.
  • Study the scope of judicial and police cooperation aimed at preventing, pursuing, and disrupting cyber-criminal activities through the lens of the new EU legislation and the sentences of the ECJ and ECtHR.
  • Explore the conflicts and contradictions in maintaining the balance between privacy and security, its applicability to cybercrime, its relevance to citizens, and its impact on policy and data protection guidelines.
