Inhalt: We are currently experiencing the most significant shift in statist identification practices since the since the consolidation of the international passport regime in the 19th century. Digital identification devices like electronic eID cards providing remote access to government services, biometric databases, and blockchain-secured digital identity wallets are increasingly complementing, or even replacing, paper-based means of identification like passports, ID cards or birth certificates. This course focuses on two interrelated questions: First, how does the move towards digital identification devices reconfigure the relations and transactions between citizens and state authorities? And secondly, in how far may the growing use of digital identification technologies reconfigure the meaning of central parameters of modern statecraft, such as citizenship, sovereignty, or territory? Besides an introductory session on 17th October, this course will be taught in two block seminars on 24/25th November 2023 and 19-20th January 2024. Course participants are asked to prepare for and actively contribute to both sessions through brief response papers, inputs, presentations and group work formats.
