    Abstract

    Since the early 1990s, transnationalism has been a strongly debated topic in political, social and economic sciences. This report aims to illustrate that, in the interest of everyone, also for those issues arising for migrants as individuals, policy-makers need to take into account new ameliorating practices to help improve integration. In particular, new technologies seem to offer further opportunities to improve immigrants’ integration. This report suggests the idea that local governments should consider fair access to new technologies as a priority and national governments should also invest in this direction through external aid programs and external relations policies.
