Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This timely and insightful book takes the reader through the various phases of planning, design, administration, and sustainability of identity management systems, which are key factors to enhance good governance, transparency, and accountability. It provides a comprehensive account of the UK National Identity Scheme, as well as a clear and detailed description of important identity and identification systems in other countries around the world. Global Challenges for Identity Policies will be of interest to both scholars and practitioners who are involved in identity management and policy development, and also acts as a great reference tool for their partners and liaisons."
—Mia Harbitz, Senior Specialist, Institutional Capacity and Finance Sector Inter-American Development Bank
