But they raise serious global human rights concerns regarding surveillance, privacy, due process, and autonomy. Speakers in this webinar will analyze the existing applicable local, national, and international laws on identity, the concerns those laws and regulations pose for digital identities, and the reforms, model laws, and principles that are being proposed by human rights organizations and the United Nations.
