Many countries use computers in the execution of its governmental tasks. In many ways the relationship between the government and its citizens is different from any other legal relations simply because of the difference in powers. This is why it is necessary to study automated decisions by the government not only from a data protection standing point but aswel through administrative law glasses. With this website I’ll try to bring together state of the information of different countries: very happy to announce the first answers of a standard Q and A on automated decisions and administrative law from Germany, Denmark, The Netherlands, Norway, UK, Switzerland & Spain. You can use the search tool to find your country of interest. I have added some info on France and Australia as well.
