Exploring how digital identity technology and policy are being shaped in the Global South
Digital Identity can mean different things for different people, places and purposes. In some places people do like being identified, while in others it is culturally avoided. There is a soft line between the right to identity, inclusion and privacy that must be sharply understood and safeguarded.

Join Alexandre as he will be delivering a glimpse of how Latin America has adopted digital identification technologies which has become an emerging and rapidly increasing trend in digital government systems.

He will paint a general picture of what is meant by digital identity and the diverse impacts it can have across geographies and sectors.

What you will learn:

- Panorama of digital identities and sectoral uses in Latin America, considering healthcare, financial inclusion, digital government and social protection. With examples from Brazil, Peru, Chile and Mexico.

- Practical examples of digital identity conjuncture in Brazil, including from a historic failure in institutionalizing a unique civil identification until our joint initiative with the Rio de Janeiro's Ministry of Finance with a decentralized mobile-based wallet for digital authentication, and its technical and legal challenges.

- How to really influence the decision-making as to maximize the benefits and minimize the harms of our digital identity design choices? In the last session of the presentation a short interaction with a social policy game (IDLand) to inform authorities and policy-makers in their decisions.
