In the context of a global biometric turn, the book presented here and in the web series ("Identification and Citizenship in Africa. Biometrics, the Documentary State and Bureaucratic Writings of the Self", edited by Séverine Awenengo Dalberto and Richard Banégas (London, Routledge, 2021) investigates processes of identification in Africa “from below”, asking what this means for the relationship between citizens and the state.
