    Abstract This policy brief examines how new technologies improve the lives of modern migrants. By facilitating affordable and easy communication, new technologies enable migrants to stay connected to the societies they emigrated from while also establishing themselves in their new societies of residence. In particular, the policy brief focuses on smartphones and how they help migrant mothers from Southeast Asia stay in touch with the families they have left behind. It makes use of research underlining the important role that new technologies – like smartphones – play in the daily lives of modern migrants. As a result, the policy brief demonstrates the importance of access to such technologies and provide policymakers with specific recommendations.
