L'identification et le corps du migrant : comment laisser des traces de présence physique dans un monde numérique

Abstract : Bodies of individuals are starting to be separated from their official identity by E-administration. It is a break with the traditional processes of personal identification that have always involved the body, its shape and its traces. The evolution of identification protocols often occurs at times of imbalances, when many people are thrown on the roads by events (wars, crises, demobilizations, epidemics). It is then necessary to substitute processes of documentation of the body for physical recognition by relatives (the face to face). These are multiple: the body of the traveler or of the migrant, is marked, described, measured and photographed. Its components, its fluids, are analyzed and compared to reference frames. But the body, which is variable, misleading and manipulated is less and less adapted to modern law, based on written evidence. It is replaced by administrative evidence, which is more and more often digital, and traces, not physical persons, but the digital devices that belong to them, and represent them. The body / identity relationship is completely broken.
