Proof of Identity for Refugees and Beyond: Blockchain Identity for the World

Recent research estimates that there are 1.5 billion individuals who do not have any means to prove their legal identity. Failing states lacking to perform even the most basic administrative tasks, supressed ethnic groups, and of course all those who have to flee their home due to conflicts or disasters.

New thinking is required to make identification available to all humans, and to help refugees and displaced people to cross borders and to apply for asylum. In this panel discussion, we will try to outline a blockchain based supranational identity infrastructure under the roof of an organization like UN.
