The European Commission and its member states are discussing “Green Passports” as a way of opening up after lockdown. They have been proposed as tools to verify the Covid immunization status and thus help to accelerate the path to normality. However, similar to the contact tracing apps there are numerous issues and concerns about what these apps should be and how to make them safe, reliable, and privacy-preserving. Director Ron Roozendaal from the Dutch Ministry of Health will talk about digital solutions, important design decisions, and the way forward. As a respondent, Prof. Nikolaus Forgo from the Department of Innovation and Digitalisation in Law will be our respondent.
