Submitted at Wednesday, 4. March 2020 um 14:47 Uhr, in category "Chapter 4 – Business, Economy, Finance and Tax, Cross-Cutting Policies" with No. 401. Author/s: "Joventut Nacionalista de Catalunya (JNC), ERPI, LUF.

The Skopje Spring Congress 2020 may decide:

EU eResidents

Considering that: 

  • Building trust in the online environment is essential for a successful transition to a digital society. 

  • The market for Identity Authentications and Fraud Solutions is predicted to grow and reach $28 billion by 2023, as hacks from criminal organisations and state-sponsored groups become more and more common.Furthermore legislation on digital identities holds the power to facilitate a new market for services related to authentication, authorisation and their attributions, worth more than 2.13 billion EUR by 2022, with eID saving businesses more than 11bn EUR per year (DSM, European Commission).

Noting that: 

 

  • Electronic identification (eID) and Trust services (such as electronic signatures) help citizens to manage their digital identities by providing online trust. 

  • The European Parliament and the Council have approved the eIDAS regulation on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market (EU Regulation 910/2014), which gives it a legal framework at the EU level and supersedes the former Electronic Signatures Directive of 1999. 

  • Already 13 EU Member States have constituted at least one national e-identity scheme, which provides over 65% of the EU population access to public services in a cross-border context.

Defending that: 

 

 

  • A coordinated approach at EU level allows citizens and businesses to use their national eID and trust services across borders and by this benefit from the opportunities that the Digital Single Market offers. 

  • Digital identity projects require legal certainty and a predictable regulatory and friendly environment, as they need to have appropriate legal validity. 

  • Decentralised digital identities, or Self-sovereign identity (SSI) systems empower citizens to directly control and have the option to selectively disclose their personal data when accessing online services This in return provides citizens a higher control over their personal data.

  • SSI systems have the option of reinforcing privacy, interoperability, transparency and connectivity, therefore helping to prevent online fraud, through making impossible to remove these factors from a person without the provided access to one’s whole identity.

Recalling: 

 

  • LYMEC resolution on “Completing the Digital Single Market” (4.09). 

  • LYMEC resolution on “A step forward for digital entrepreneurship in Europe” (4.34)

  • LYMEC resolution on “European Digitalisation Accelerated” (4.37)

LYMEC: 

 

  • Defends that digital identity is a key prerequisite for the digital single market and hence should be a priority of policy makers;

  • Believes that a decentralised digital identity framework in Europe could support the role of governments as an issuer of verifiable credentials and help clarify the implementation requirements set in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for the compliance of various kinds of personal data;

  • Considers that each person should be the sole and ultimate owner of their data and to have the option to administer it according to each transaction they wish to make, carrying absolute legal validity and needed privacy;

  • Calls for EU Member States to guarantee the mutual recognition and acceptance of electronic identification among all EU citizens and to provide a SIS-friendly legal framework; 

  • Asks the EU institutions and its Member States to introduce the required legal incentives to help the market for authentication, authorisation and attributed services and other distributed ledger technology (DLT) solutions, such as blockchain, to flourish;

  • Believes that digital technologies will be the key and strategic pinpoint for the prosperity of the EU in the near future, and that Europe has to be at the forefront of the revolution of new age technologies; 

  • Asks the LYMEC Bureau to forward this resolution to the ALDE Party and to the ALDE Council;

  • Calls upon the LYMEC Member Organisations and member contacts in the EU Member States and applicant states to persuade their mother parties and other politicians to achieve the aims of this resolution.
