New OSCE/ODIHR publication on good practices in identity management aims to support states in improving civil registration and identification systems
TAGS

A new publication highlighting good practices in identity management was launched at an event in Vienna on 29 September 2017. The document identifies best practices both in providing evidence of identity through the issuance of travel documents and ID cards, as well as in ensuring access to economic, civil and political rights. 

The Compendium of Good Practices in Identity Management in the OSCE Region was produced jointly by the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), which contributed information on identity management and freedom of movement, and the OSCE Transnational Threats Department, which contributed information on travel document security.

The publication is the result of consultations initiated in 2013, and the subsequent process has involved a series of expert meetings as well as a detailed questionnaire distributed to all OSCE participating States in August 2016. The compendium builds upon existing ODIHR expertise in providing technical support to participating States in civil registration, identification, and population registration and reform.
