-Digital ​privacy ​cryptobar +|630pm|[[https://​twitter.com/​carlynyst|Carly Kind]]|Biometric technologies,​ NGOs, and humanitarian interventions - talk + Q&​A|With the numbers of refugees and asylum seekers continually growing, and international foreign aid shrinking, humanitarian and refugee assistance organisations are under more pressure than ever to improve the accuracy and effectiveness of their interventions. Biometric technologies are being touted as a solution to this problem, accompanied by claims that they can decrease fraud and establish the veracity of asylum claims. But a critical analysis of biometrics show that such claims are overblown, and are often outweighed by the significant negative implications of biometrics for individual ​privacy ​and autonomy. Carly will explore some of these issues with reference to a 2018 review she produced with The Engine Room for Oxfam on the use of biometrics in the humanitarian sector.|
