Statelessness and Exclusion Podcast #4 Digital ID
The Digital ID episode featuring Laura Bingham and Mustafa Mahmoud, looks at digitalisation of IDs and the impact this has on statelessness. Colonial powers introduced the idea of documentation to determine who “belongs” to the state and who does not. IDs are another form of discrimination against stateless people that first started with colonialism and this part of the podcast unleashes the history of documentation, politics of digital ID and the discrimination against stateless individuals through the lens of colonialism.
Laura Bingham is an international human rights lawyer and Executive Director of the Institute for Law, Innovation, and Technology at Temple Law School, United States.
Mustafa Mahmoud is a Co-Director of Namati with over nine years of experience supporting partner organizations working with community-based paralegals on Citizenship rights, inclusion, and statelessness in Kenya, Bangladesh, Jordan, and Myanmar.
