Data Science for Asylum Legal Landscaping (DATA4ALL)

Leveraging large-scale decision data in the Nordics, DATA4ALL pioneers a new research agenda combining data science and migration law to understand the significant outcome variations in asylum decisions within and across countries.

Data Science for Asylum Legal Landscaping (DATA4ALL) is a four-year project (2020-2024) funded by a cross-cutting grant from the DATA+ pool administered by the Rector of University of Copenhagen. DATA4ALL will compare large-scale decision data from the Nordic countries and use natural language processing (NLP), sentiment analysis, machine learning, and process mining to unpack and provide a unique understanding of this phenomenon. The project further draws on critical data studies to engage decision-makers themselves, raise questions to the data and promote data literacy and ethics among both scholars and practitioners.
