Anne-Marie Oostveen came to the Oxford Internet Institute in April 2007 after she had been granted a 2-year Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship (funded by the European Commission under its Sixth Framework Programme) to conduct her post-doctoral research on the topic of ‘E-democracy technologies and the problem of public trust’.

Currently, Anne-Marie is Principal Investigator on the FastPass project and Co-Chair on the EINS project. The FastPass project will establish and demonstrate a harmonized, modular approach for Automated Border Control (ABC) gates. Border control is a major challenge for security and mobility within the EU. Travellers request a minimum delay and a speedy border crossing, while Border Guards must fulfil their obligation to secure the EUs borders against illegal immigration and other threats. Fastpass will serve both demands at the same time to keep security at the highest level while increasing the speed and the comfort for all legitimate travellers at all border control points aiming at a minimum of privacy intrusion. FastPass is a Collaborative Project funded by the European Commission under its Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). Grant agreement no: 312583.

Within the EINS project Anne-Marie is co-chair and project coordinator of the ‘Internet Privacy and Identity, Trust and Reputation Mechanisms – JRA5’ working group. Aiming to become a reference point for the coordination of studies in legislation and technology addressing privacy, identity, online trust and reputation, JRA5 will draw together and further develop research on distributed social networks (such as Diaspora and Footlights), partial identities (PrimeLife), privacy-protective sensor networks (FRESNEL), privacy beliefs and behaviours (PVNets), online trust and reputation mechanisms. It will integrate research efforts, scientific concepts and methodologies from computer science, psychology, anthropology, sociology, political science, statistics, graph theory, behavioural economics and law, and will investigate trade-offs between anonymity and accountability, and how decentralized privacy-enhanced systems can protect against spam, offensive content and criminal activities, while at the same time creating reliable and trusted mechanisms for online interaction based on reputation systems. The basic goal of Internet Science for privacy and identity should be to find the right combination of autonomy (solving security and privacy issues a user cannot resolve) and user control, in a way that is comprehensible and likely to be accepted.

Anne-Marie has held research positions at the Social Informatics Department at the University of Amsterdam, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences in Amsterdam and the Rathenau Institute in The Hague. She studied Cultural Anthropology and Social Informatics at the University of Amsterdam. On 23 January 2007 she was awarded the degree of Doctor after successfully defending her PhD thesis prepared in the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences, University of Amsterdam. The main focus of her PhD thesis ‘Context Matters: A Social Informatics Perspective on the Design and Implications of Large-Scale e-Government Systems’ is on the social and organizational conditions and (second-order) effects of deploying remote electronic voting technologies.

Anne-Marie is also co-founder and board member of the Dutch ‘Wij vertrouwen stemcomputers niet‘ (We don’t trust e-voting computers) foundation.
