Mig@Net report – Communication and information flows

This study researches how information and communication technologies (ICT), and particularly video-communication technologies, influence everyday-life patterns of communication in transnational milieus. Based on empirical case studies conducted in the three partner cities (Paris, Athens and Ljubljana), the research exemplifies the complex combinations of global media uses and face-to-face encounters that emerge in response to the specific needs of transnational populations and bring about new global forms of “being at home”. How is global togetherness possible? How does the availability of ICTs alter migrants’ everyday lives and senses of belonging? The research combined ethnographic methods of transnational field research with ethnomethodological techniques for analysing virtual communications, which were developed along the research process.
