Title: Oxford Internet Institute: Workshop on “A Policy and Legal Framework for Identity Management”
Location: University of Oxford, St. Hugh’s College, University of Oxford


The event is organized by the Oxford Internet Institute and sponsored by the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.
The goal of the event is to bring together thought leaders from the identity management (IDM) industry, business, government, intergovernmental organizations, and civil society to consider what is desirable in a policy and legal framework for IDM – particularly if it is to foster a free and open society.
