IDENTITY WORLD is the new conference on how trusted technologies address the state of the individual identity and its contribution to global development.
An estimated 1.5 billion people do not have an official, government issued and recognized document as proof of their legal identity. The majority of these people live in Asia and Africa and a disproportionate number are women and children.
IDENTITY WORLD has set out to address this identity gap through the collective lens of our cultures, experiences, understanding and resources. Complementing its sister World e-ID and Cybersecurity conference till now, both the intensity of discussion and diversity of subject matter has lent itself to become in 2017 a separate space in the realm of public discourse.
Over 2.5 days, 40 speakers will address thoroughly the strategic framework stakes along key themes including: Statelessness & Inclusion • Civil Registration and Vital Statistics • Public & Private Sector Cooperation • Digital Identity, Democracy & Peace.
Thought leadership insights will be illustrated by case studies of large-scale implementations (identity, e-vote, healthcare, welfare payments…) as well as industry and technology perspectives. Multiple panel discussions are scheduled to ensure maximum interactivity.
