The National ID Debate: Is the Philippines Ready?

Foundation for Media Alternatives

In March 2016, the Philippines made headlines when the personal data of around 55 million registered voters were leaked online. In the wake of the controversy, discussions on security and privacy resurfaced among legislators and the public. Among those taken up were relevant policy proposals, like the establishment of a national identification (ID) system.

Foundation for Media Alternatives (FMA) is a nonprofit NGO in the Philippines seeking to democratise information and communication systems and resources for citizens and communities. They are a member of the APC network.
