Legal identity, ethics, and rights
Zoom, 10 June 2020
On 10 June 2020, the IUSSP Scientific Panel on Population Perspectives and Demographic Methods to Strengthen Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Systems held an online technical panel discussion on “Legal identity, ethics, and rights” which explored contemporary ethics and human rights issues associated with civil registration, vital statistics and legal identity systems. This panel discussion built on the panel discussion hosted at the 2019 African Population Conference in Uganda and focused on challenges and opportunities for demographers and population scientists.
The meetings was attended by the eight IUSSP CRVS Fellows and by the members of the IUSSP Scientific Panel as well as by several additional invited experts.
This IUSSP Panel has received generous support from the Centre of Excellence for Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Systems. Housed at the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), the Centre of Excellence is jointly funded by Global Affairs Canada and IDRC.
