The Future of Identity


“How will changes in the next ten years affect notions of identity in the UK?”

The Foresight project on the Future Identities set out to explore how changes in technology, politics, economics, our environment and demographics will affect our notion of identity.

The aim of the project was to come to a broad and independent scientific view of changing identities in the UK through a synthesis of existing evidence from a range of academic disciplines, including computer science, criminology, the social sciences and the humanities. 


The projects aims at improving capabilities to detect identity/document fraud and to perform tactical/operational risk assessment in the first line of border control.
