Migration has become an important factor of economic, demographic and social structures in global information society. However, events of the past decade make it very clear that current migration policies and integration strategies are unable to cope with the outcome of accelerating and increasingly widespread migration. But, before more efficient immigration regulations can be introduced, the framers need in-depth knowledge of migration triggers and of the factors which shape migrant identities. A rarely discussed component of this is the relationship between information and communications technology, and migration.
My research concerned how migrants use the Internet in their quest for new homes as well as after they resettle. One platform is the online migration industry, where applications may be accessed for fees and where prospective migrants can get in touch with one another to seek advice.
Before analyzing this relatively new phenomenon, I will first briefly review the most important points of existing theories on the relationship between ICT and migration.
Then, I will outline the typology of new and redesigned migration-related businesses triggered by the Internet and operating for profit. Finally, I will take a closer look at social capital as a product, a strategy that I will present in the context of migration to Europe by Latin Americans.
