Since may, approximately 25.4 million refugees around the world have fled their homes to escape violence and persecution. Some countries are trying to tackle the Problem.

In 2015, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has set a policy of “open door”. This has led to more than 1.4 million immigrants poured into the country. The Integration of the refugees into the society does not run always smoothly. This is partly due to the identification. Worldwide, there are more than 1.1 billion people without ID.

“Refugees, particularly those in protracted crises, and are vulnerable, especially when we consider the challenge of identity. Refugees must not only formulate their personal identity to achieve a sense of belonging, but also from a legal, social and political point of view. The Problem is more complex than each individual an identity card to assign as global crises around the world are different, and refugees and their Situation is constantly changing.“ Joseph Thompson, Co-Founder
