In digital public administration, citizen no longer encounters a human administrator. Instead, she encounters a computer interface such as a chatbot or a webpage. As these interfaces are a product of human design, they cannot be neutral. Instead, they often include bias, which may further lead to unequal or even discriminatory practices and structures. This is the problem that DARE aims to resolve: technological interfaces should comply with the law, but we often remain ignorant of that compliance. DARE examines the interconnections between law and technological design. It addresses the problem of law compliance of technology design both descriptively (what is the status quo?) and normatively (what should be done?). To achieve its goals, DARE builds on socio-legal studies, social sciences and computer science. Most importantly, DARE aims at stablishing legal interface design as an interdisciplinary research field.
