  1. DNA Testing for Family Reunification and the Limits of Biological Truth.Torsten H. Voigt & Catherine Lee - 2020 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 45 (3):430-454.
    As nation-states make greater efforts to regulate the flow of people on the move—refugees, economic migrants, and international travelers alike—advocates of DNA profiling technologies claim DNA testing provides a reliable and objective way of revealing a person’s true identity for immigration procedures.
