About the Event
Why do identities get digitalised? What benefits can this bring to people affected by conflicts and natural disasters? And how are humanitarian organisations safeguarding their identities?
Building on the ninth Digital Dilemmas Dialogue, experts from civil society and the fields of humanitarian work and policy will be joining this event to discuss how digital identities can be used in humanitarian operations. In particular, the focus will be on how this type of digital service is used, what issues and risks it might create, and when it may or may not be appropriate for humanitarian organisations to use it.
The Digital Dilemmas Debates are a series of roundtable discussions between prominent experts and stakeholders from different sectors about the humanitarian digital transformation, its implications and the work ahead. Each month, they will explore a different type or trend in the technologies used to respond to various types of crisis, and offer reflections on what is coming next.
