The New Passport-Poor
In Casablanca, the ex-lovers Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) and Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman) reunite in the Moroccan port city where Ilsa and her husband, Victor Laszlo, have fled. Most people remember the movie as a story about love during wartime, and at first glance, it is: the pair ultimately renounce their love to help Laszlo, a Czech resistance leader, stick it to the Nazis. But the film’s entire plot—and, indeed, the very condition for Ilsa and Rick’s reunion—hinges on something much more mundane: Ilsa and Laszlo’s pursuit of travel documents. The papers themselves aren’t much to look at—just two folded sheets marked with an official’s signature—but in the film, as in real life, they can make the difference between life and death.

Processing biometric data? Be careful, under the GDPR
As the GDPR considers biometric data to be a special category of sensitive personal data, processing and protecting it must proceed under the framework reserved for sensitive personal data generally. While the GDPR broadly prohibits the processing of sensitive personal data, it recognizes certain bases to justify its processing, chiefly, the explicit consent of the data subject, the performance of specific contracts or processing for certain specific purposes.

Our Bodies or Ourselves by Anne-Marie Slaughter & Stephanie Hare - Project Syndicate
Anne-Marie Slaughter and Stephanie Hare | Project Syndicate
The collection and storage of people’s biometric data fundamentally changes the relationship between citizen and state. Once “presumed innocent,” we are now, in the sinister words of former UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd, “unconvicted persons.”
