|This working paper aims to establish a new field of research at the crossroads of migration and information and communication flows. There are several factors which make this a worthwhile perspective to adopt. The central point is that contemporary international migration is embedded in the dynamics of the information society, following common patterns and interconnected dynamics. As a result, information and communication flows are now starting to be identified as key issues in migration policies. In addition, there is a lack of empirical knowledge on the shaping of information networks and the use of information and communication technologies in migration contexts. This working paper also aims to serve as a source of hypothesis for further research.
