Germany Says Blockchain Can Support European Unity

The German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAFM) has praised blockchain’s potential to ”support Europe’s unity at a fundamental level” by improving the union’s asylum protocol.

BAFM published findings of its study on 26 March in a white paper, detailing how blockchain could be used in the case of identifying refugees using the immutable technology.

Specifically, it is suggested that refugees arriving in the country without official identification could have their biometric data collected during their initial registration from their first point of entry country. The blockchain identity system would then store the data to be shared with multiple organizations as required, providing consistency and security throughout the process.

The authors of the white paper conclude that this new robust system could be the ”digital enabler of European federalism in the asylum context”, supporting ”Europe’s unity at a fundamental level”.

The proof of concept supporting the paper was undertaken by BAFM Fraunhofer FIT and an anonymous technology partner.

The white paper was authored by the Project Group Business & Information Systems Engineering of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology FIT, edited by BAFM.
