Webinar: Constructing the foundations for legal identity in post conflict situations

Event Details

The Centre of Excellence for CRVS Sytems is organizing a webinar on legal identity in post conflict situations: 

How can legal, regulatory and institutional frameworks be restructured to be more inclusive and provide trusted and trustworthy identity credentials to everyone? In post-conflict settings, how can undocumented adults, marginalized populations and refugees be registered? This webinar will share findings from research that documents how Afghanistan, Georgia, Rwanda and South Africa have made registration of vital events more accessible by adjusting or removing legal and institutional obstacles in post-conflict settings. Implicitly these countries are attempting to provide all citizens, residents and refugees with a legal identity, but in practice some of them fall short. The study found that in each country studied civil registration and legal identity systems were recognized as part of the healing and reconciliation processes in their countries.

Simultaneous French, Portuguese and English translation will be available.
