Human rights implications of digital ID programmes

Access Now campaigns for those in power to consider the impact that ill-considered and poorly implemented digital ID programmes can have on human lives, via the ongoing #WhyID initiative.

This workshop showcases the processes through which digital identity programmes have been evaluated; the ways in which these programmes have failed to properly integrate human rights safeguards; and identifies mechanisms for overcoming and preventing those failures.
