La création du fichier biométrique TES : la convergence de logiques au service du contrôle

Abstract : The creation of the TES file is justified, by its promoters, by purely managerial motives. However, other logics are at work in favor of the use of biometric techniques in the identification of individuals: a political logic of population monitoring favoring the centralization of this type of data, an economic logic that intends to benefit from the development of a new market, as well as a technical logic whose main motivation is to make happen what is possible. To the security argument, regularly put forward to justify the weakening of the fundamental rights, are added those of increased productivity and improved service to the user. The absence of a hierarchy between utilitarian aims and the safeness of the population exposes the latter to considerable risks in case of misuse of the implemented instruments.
