Dissecting Aadhaar: Identity, Welfare, and Privacy

October 17, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

In this session, we will discuss the dualities between identity and welfare, data and privacy, and identity and privacy. I will highlight the use of identity data for the delivery of services and the challenges involved in the usage of multiple identities. I will briefly discuss the genesis of Aadhaar as a Unique ID project, its technological basis, and the pathways of use in delivery of services. Controversies about Aadhaar such as denial of services to the poor, intrusion into privacy, and potentialities to create a surveillance state will also be discussed.Discipline/Coordinating Entity: Humanities and Social Sciences
