The objective of the conference, hosted by the Norwegian EMN contact point, was to discuss the possibilities and challenges faced by immigration authorities when verifying the identity of asylum seekers and other immigrants.
Establishing and verifying a person's identity are core issues when reviewing and processing applications for immigration, asylum and residence. As a result, authorities constantly focus efforts on developing robust, effective methods and systems designed to establish and verify identity.
This conference especially focused on the role technology can play in identity verification.
