DigiLaw: The Digitization of Nordic-Baltic Public Administrations

This contribution will present the project DigiLaw, funded by Nordic Council of Ministers. This project aims to clarify the legal framework for the digitization of public administrations within the Nordic-Baltic region. It focuses on the constitutional aspects and human rights to be taken into account when digitizing and automating public services. The proposed EU AI Regulation and its implications for these services will be taken into account. This project's contribution is twofold: First, it inquires whether existing national administrative law systems sufficiently ensure compliance with the constitutional and human rights obligations. Second, it discusses whether a Nordic-Baltic convention might be a relevant tool to ensure sufficient uniformity in relation to the legal framework, thereby ensuring the opportunities for increased co-operation within public digitalization between the Nordic-Baltic regions.
