This webinar will explore how law, history and policy have shaped the inclusiveness of birth registration in South Africa, Brazil and Uganda; how the design and implementation of digitized voter registration systems in Cameroon can both be a force for inclusive and mechanism of exclusion; and how the accessibility of population register systems varies for different vulnerable subpopulations.
The webinar showcases individual fellow research projects and a collaborative group project being undertaken through the IUSSP Initiative on Population Registers, Ethics and Human Rights. This initiative infuses interdisciplinary perspectives, drawing on perspectives from law, history, economics, public policy, demography, and public health, to address the ethical and human rights challenges that are emerging as population register systems are rapidly digitised.
This webinar is co-hosted by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Canada, the UNFPA Centre of Excellence for CRVS Systems and the IUSSP Scientific Panel on Population Registers, Ethics and Human Rights.
