It was a multi- and cross-disciplinary research theme centered on the complexities of trust in a digital context that studied privacy, identity and legitimacy in relation to 1) Security and privacy awareness in a digital context; 2) What knowledge (institutions) are trusted and how is this constructed; and 3) Surveillance and data retention as a legal trend.
