A lecture about ID cards and NO2ID was given to the Glasgow and Strathclyde Law School on 28th February 2008. Topics covered included the history of ID cards in Britain, the passage of the legislation through Parliament and the campaign against them. The slides are available as a PDF: NO2ID Glasgow and Strathclyde Law.

A NO2ID presentation was given at a workshop on "the future of privacy" at the Fife Rights Forum annual event on 25th November 2005. A PDF of the presentation is available: Privacy Implications of the Identity Cards Bill. A similar presentation was given on 10th May 2006 to members of Glasgow Anti-Racist Alliance: NO2ID/GARA slides.
