This project explored how changes in technology, politics, economics, our environment and demographics will affect our view of identity.
The aim of the project was to come to a broad and independent scientific view of changing identities in the UK by bringing together existing evidence from a range of academic disciplines, including computer science, criminology, the social sciences and the humanities.
The project was guided by a group of experts to make sure it included the most relevant evidence and its findings were of a high scientific standard.
The future of identity project commissioned 20 independent papers, providing a wide ranging evidence base for the project.
