The principle question this study seeks to address is wheter the public can be compelled to participate in a mass DNA screening (also known as 'large-scale DNA investigations' or 'DNA-dragnets') in criminal investigations. In order to provide a well-founded answer that covers all aspects of the issue, first of all the existing regulations governing mass DNA screenings are set out, with an explanation of the position of those who refuse to participate in such an investigation in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and England & Wales.
