Algoprudence: presentation report Risk Profiling for Social Welfare Re-examination to Dutch Minister for Digitalisation

Francien Dechesne, Associate Professor at eLaw, contributed as an expert to the advisory report of the organisation AlgorithmAudit, which was presented to the Dutch Minister for Digitalisation Alexandra van Huffelen on Wednesday 29 November 2023. The report contains a number of concrete norms to avoid unfair treatment in the context of Social Welfare Re-examination. The impetus for drafting this advice was the controversial risk model used by the Municipality of Rotterdam until 2021.

Professor Anne Meuwese (chair on Public Law & Governance of Artificial Intelligence) provided a prominent contribution to a panel discussion on the new concept of 'Algoprudence' - to which the report aims to contribute - and regulation of algorithmic decision making in the government context.

For more information on the presentation of the report, see the website of Algorithm Audit, and for the report (AA:2023:02:A) and problem statement (AA:2023:02:P) the website of Algoprudence.
