Giving citizenship in exchange for data tracking
Rebirth is a data-driven system run by a private enterprise that enables international mobility. It offers a means for people without proper documentation to obtain a legal footprint and empowers them to change their fate. Immigrants are relocated to suit the demand of private companies, which employ them. Governments guarantee legal citizenship to those enrolled in the program in exchange for data tracking to monitor immigration flow, through an ‘immigrant cloud’, which is a database that acts as a legal digital footprint.
