There are over 68 million displaced people in the world, and over 25 million refugees, according to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and as these individuals move across borders and register for legal recognition and vital services, they share sensitive personal information with a many different organisations, increasingly using digital identification technologies. Despite growing interest in the benefits new digital technologies can bring for both organisations and individuals, there has not yet been any in depth research to explore refugee registration and data management.
This research report and the accompanying interactive graphic explore these questions and point to directions to advance this work.
