Report of the Workshop on Digital Identity, Global Citizenship and the Future of Democracy
What happens when the entity that issued your identification documents no longer exists? Are encrypted identities the solution to this and further a prerequisite for technologically enabled forms of enhanced participatory democracy, even at a global scale? And, if that is possible, are we all global citizens, as Diogenes and Kant claimed to be? On the 17th of May 2018, Monique Morrow (the Humanized Internet) and Prof. Dr. Dr. Ingolf Pernice (Director at the HIIG) invited various stakeholders to deliberate about similar questions regarding digital identity, global citizenship and the future of democracy at an interdisciplinary workshop at the HIIG. The workshop took place within the context of HIIG’s bid in the Advocate Europe 2018 competition with the project „Digital Identity, Citizenship and Democracy in Europe“.
