Naked Science: the State of Identity

It is hoped that ID cards will tackle serious crimes including terrorism, drug trafficking, identity theft and illegal immigration


It is hoped that ID cards will tackle serious crimes including terrorism, drug trafficking, identity theft and illegal immigration. But do we really need them, or want them? The Dana Centre will tackle the issues surrounding the introduction of Identity Cards in a public debate. The introduction of cards aims to create a sense of shared citizenship and belonging. They will also aim to help ensure that government services are only used by those entitled to them and tackle problems faced by society today. However, just how reliable and accurate are they in identifying individuals and how will we prevent fraud and identity theft? Will identity cards infringe on our civil liberties or will they successfully tackle the problems at large in society?

Speakers include: Dominic Bascombe, The Voice, Stephen Harrison, Deputy Director, Identity Cards, Home Office Identity Cards Programme Team, Neil Fisher, Director of Security Solutions QinetiQ, Dr Caoilfhionn Gallagher, Senior Privacy Researcher, Liberty and Karen Chouhan, Chief Executive, 1990 Trust Human Rights for Race Equality.
