ICT facilitating travel & migration

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) often play an important role in migration. ICT includes the use of hardware such as mobile phones, tablets, laptops and PCs, and software like apps, social media platforms, webpages or digital radio. Digital infrastructures of migration are used by all relevant actors, such as migrants, governments, private actors and humanitarian organisations. They support migrants during their journey in ways that range from information campaigns on migration legislations and mediation of work, marriage or education-centered migration to advertisement of services including migrant smuggling and visa brokerage. However, the use of ICT strongly depends on the class, gender and age of a person as well as levels of digital literacy, electricity and network coverage.

Data Centres Optimization for Energy-Efficient and EnvironmentalLy Friendly INternet

Year 2013
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
DOLFIN addresses the demand/response and energy stabilisation scenario of the Smart Grid by optimising the energy consumption of Data Centres (DC), accompanied, if necessary, with a respective negotiation and readjustment of the DC's Service Level Agreements (SLAs). To achieve this, DOLFIN adopts an innovative energy closed control loop that targets to deliver the following advancements:• Create an integrated poll of 4 parametric energy consumption optimisation mechanisms (eCOM).• Organise the orchestration of eCOMs at the DC level, through dynamically deployed energy optimisation policies.• Fine-tune the parametrical implementation of eCOM and contribute to their standardisation.• Create a platform for handling virtualised ICT resources in an energy aware manner, considering SLA restrictions.• Introduce the idea of synergetic DCs and implement a migration process for ICT-processing workload, complying with SLA restrictions.• Make the DOLFIN DC part of the Smart Grid energy stabilisation solution for the demand/response scenario.• Build a system that is able to take informed decisions, so as to adapt the DC's electricity consumption to the demands of the Smart Grid.• Combine traditional metrics for ICT SLA management with energy performance metrics for ICT.• Implement a DC SLA renegotiation process considering both ICT and energy metrics.• Constitute the ICT SLA metrics proportional to the energy SLA metrics in a DC.

E-Diaspora Atlas

Year 2009
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The e-Diasporas Atlas is a unique experiment in research on diasporas as well as in publishing, a first in the restitution of scientific findings and their presentation. Historically, the emergence of e-diasporas occurred in tandem with the diffusion of the Internet and the development of multiple online public services. At the end of the 1990s, a number of institutions joined forces with the new ‘e’-technologies (e-administration, e-democracy, e-education, e-healthcare, e-culture, e-tourism), which gave rise to the first presence on the Web of associations run by migrant populations. If the earliest websites were produced by IT professionals, we soon saw the diffusion of the Web in all of the diasporic communities and at all levels. The last ten years witnessed the use of both Webs 1.0 and 2.0 in these communities as well as the widespread appropriation of the various social-networking platforms (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.). These new communication and organization practices have produced a vast, moving e-corpus, whose exploration, analysis and archiving have never before been attempted. The outcome of the efforts of more than 80 researchers worldwide, the e-Diasporas Atlas is the first of its kind, with some 8,000 migrant websites archived and observed in their interactions.

Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The research study "ICT to support the everyday life integration of immigrants or ethnic minority people (IEM)" (ConnectIEM) which was co-funded by JRC-IPTS and DG INFSO, European Commission. The following external research teams collaborated in the study: the Migration and Network Society Programme (MNS) hosted by the Internet Interdisciplinary Institute (IN3) of the Open University of Catalonia (UOC), the Technological and Social Change Group (TASCHA) hosted by the University of Washington, and a network of local researchers based in the target countries. The study gathered through an on-line survey statistically representative and comparable cross-country data on the ICT skills, access and usage of “connected migrants” from the main migration groups living in 8 EU Member States. It then explored the relationship between internet usage and integration processes and developed evidence-based policy options.

Coherent Broadband Networks Embedding Smart Photonics for Cost-Effective Quintuple-Play

Year 2013
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
'WARP-5 is driven by the internet explosion and the question for sustainable bandwidth delivery. It endeavours the advancement of optical metro-access networks through the new paradigm of coherent ultra-dense WDM systems. Under the umbrella of Fibre-to-the-Home as ICT field with high market potential, efforts towards capacity and reach extension pose severe system complexity and require a disruptive yet straightforward solution. WARP-5 aims to provide the required potential for a next-generation photonic Tb/s-capacity ICT infrastructure and the required credentials for low cost and power consumption. It does so by tackling two important pillars of ICT networks: their capacity and scalability. WARP-5 will unlock the potential of advanced modulation formats in cost-sensitive ICT segments such as optical access. A novel modulation scheme for off-the-shelf devices radically improves simple intensity modulation towards 16-level QAM. The applied technique lifts the guaranteed per-user data rate to 10 Gb/s, without raising cost and energy consumption. The 30-fold increase in the granted bandwidth with respect to the commercially available standards such as XG-PON comes with a high spectral occupancy and 5 GHz channel spacing. Scalability of common ICT infrastructure will be guaranteed not only by the envisaged transition from the electrical TDM domain to the pure optical and highly granular WDM domain; WARP-5 adopts a disruptive amplification scheme that transforms background noise into supportive gain without electrically powered field equipment, providing a 'green' and effective solution to smoothly grow and migrate the network through reach/split extension. WARP-5 will demonstrate a next-generation ICT infrastructure with a long reach of 100 km and beyond, an aggregated capacity of up to 5 Tb/s and a high density of 1000 users. WARP-5 will strengthen the European leadership in coherent access networks by raising the research independence and performance of Dr. Schrenk.'

Inferring migrations: traditional methods and new approaches based on mobile phone, social media, and other big data

Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This project aims at exploring possibilities at-using social media data and big data in general for estimating (labour) mobility and migration in the EU. The report is published online. As results were promising, a pilot project will be launched on its basis sometime in 2017. **Feasibility Study:** http://ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?catId=738&langId=en&pubId=7910&type=2&furtherPubs=yes This report addresses the question of whether it is technically, financially and legally feasible to estimate geographic mobility and migration flows in the European Union. The study reviews state-of-the-art methods to measure stocks and flows of migrants using traditional data sources but also new and innovative data sources such as mobile phone data and social media data. It finds that it is indeed feasible to estimate geographic mobility and migration flows in the European Union but that that it depends on several important factors such as access to data, legal obstacles and desired outcomes that are outlined in the paper.

Digital Crossings in Europe: Gender, Diaspora and Belonging

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Many immigrants enter Europe both legally and illegally every year. This creates multiple challenges for the Union, including the gender and ethnic segregation of migrant groups, especially women. While it strives for an inclusive and integrated society as envisioned by the EU motto ‘Unity in Diversity’, it is still often perceived more as ‘Fortress Europe.’ This project focuses on the ‘connected migrant’, studying how virtual communities of migrants, or digital diasporas, convey issues of technology, migration, globalisation, alienation and belonging capturing the lives of migrants in their interaction with multiple worlds and media. More specifically, it will investigate whether digital technologies enhance European integration or foster gender and ethnic segregation, and, if so, how. Using a multi-layered and cutting-edge approach that draws from the humanities, social science and new media studies (i.e. internet studies and mobile media), this research considers: 1. How migration and digital technologies enable digital diasporas (Somali, Turkish, Romanian) and the impact these have on identity, gender and belonging in European urban centres; 2. How these entanglements are connected to and perceived from outside Europe by focusing on transnational ties; and 3. How digital connections create new possibilities for cosmopolitan outlooks, rearticulating Europe’s motto of ‘Unity in Diversity.’ The outcomes of this work will be innovative at three levels. a) Empirically, the project gathers, maps and critically grounds online behaviour by migrant women from a European comparative perspective. b) Methodologically, it breaks new ground by developing new methods of analysis for digital diasporas contributing to the development of ‘postcolonial’ digital humanities. c) Conceptually, it integrates colonial and migrant relations into the idea of Europe, elaborating on the notion of cosmopolitan belonging through virtual connectivity.

Determinants of ‘Mobilisation’ at Home and Abroad: Analysing the Micro-Foundations of Out-Migration & Mass Protest

Year 2019
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
"Connecting theoretical expectations from the migration and protest literatures, we examine: a) whether similar factors drive the choice to migrate and/or protest at the individual level; b) how context affects this mobilisation; c) whether these choices are independent of each other or mutually reinforcing/ undermining. MOBILISE employs a multi-method (nationally representative face-to-face panel surveys, online migrant surveys, protest participant surveys, focus groups, life-history interviews, social media analysis) and a multi-sited research design. It covers Ukraine, Poland, Morocco and Brazil, which have recently witnessed large-scale emigration and protests. It follows migrants from these countries to Germany, the UK and Spain. The project offers four key innovations: it combines protest and migration; it captures all the relevant groups for a comparative study (protesters, migrants, migrant protesters and people who have not engaged in migration or protest); it tracks individuals over time by employing a panel survey; it includes the use of social media data providing real time information on the role of networks and political remittances. These features allow the project to make a major contribution to theory development in both migration and protest studies and offer key insights to policy makers on factors influencing political and economic stability."

Education-to-domestic and- foreign labour market transitions of youth: The role of local community, peer group and new media

Year 2016
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Objectives: (1) To explore the role of place of living (locality) in school-to-work transitions to the domestic and foreign labour market by both young females and males; (2) To investigate the roles of parents and relatives in school-to-work transitions to both domestic and foreign labour market of young females and males; (3) To study the role of a peer group in school-to-work transitions to the domestic and the foreign labour market of young females and males; (4) To explore the role of new media and acquaintances connected to them in school-to-work transitions to both domestic and foreign labour market of young females and males; (5) To study how much youngsters use knowledge and skills obtained during education in the labour market and how they use experience acquired abroad after return to Poland. What we already know: The school-to-work (also abroad) transition is not a single event. It is a life phase which can last few years and can consist of various, also temporary jobs with. differentiated content. This is the time in the biographies of youngsters to make up their minds and make decisions for the future occupational paths. After EU enlargement in May 2004, one in three Polish youngsters from small towns and villages had their first jobs abroad. As main reasons they usually indicated financial motivations but in-depth studies uncovered that transiting from Polish education to the foreign labour market means also: firm leaving parental home, self-responsibility, ‘taking life in own hands’, ‘building up self-esteem’. Travels abroad are also for a life style connected to the way of living in multicultural metropolises. This is also a kind of an escape from the local constraining nexus: educationjob-marriage-kid-mortgage. Methodology: The core of the project is a peer group mapped and selected in localities in Poland with different social and economic backgrounds, such as: migration history, postcommunism transition, local labour market etc. Members of selected peer-groups will be monitored throughout the course of three years, in the interludes of 12 months (panel study). We will select 10 peer groups in three selected localities which at the end will give roughly of 320 in-depth interviews in total. The project will also take a social photography of places of living (localities) of youngsters. This social photography will be textured with observations of places where youngsters spend free time, talks with parents, local informants such as school teachers, people from local labour offices, people running clubs and other institutions where youngsters go and content analysis of new media such as: Facebook, blogs, professional portals etc. What the project can offer: Between the waves of talks with youngsters from the selected peer groups, the project will offer free of charge, voluntary coaching and job counselling in the University of Social Sciences and Humanities (University SWPS). The project will give also future opportunities to the youngsters to get involved in the Youth in Centre just established at University SWPS, for instance through participating in Youth Advisory Boards which will be set up to advice youth studies undertaken by the Centre. Originality: Researching the school-to- domestic and- foreign labour market transitions of youngsters through the eyes of members of peer groups who are both movers and stayers.

Masculinities, Youth and Violence in the Moroccan Underclass: Young Men and Their Future Selves.

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Male juvenile delinquency as represented by self-styled tcharmils has been the focus of a moral panic in Morocco over the last years. The tcharmil subculture has gained visibility through a social-media propagated aesthetic that turns the stigma of social disqualification into a source of pride by extolling assertive masculinity, violence, and the transgression of social and religious norms. By adopting consumerist values that overlap with those of more privileged classes, and by frequenting the latter’s urban spaces of leisure, the tcharmil blur social boundaries. The resulting anxieties among the privileged has resulted in public campaigns and police crackdown. MoroccoMasculinities examines the construction of the masculinities of disadvantaged young men in order to understand how gender, class, space and ethnicity intersect in juvenile moral and cultural formations in today’s Morocco. On the one hand, studying the tcharmil subculture reveals how juvenile subjectivities are reshaped by the combined effect of urbanisation, the new media, and state policies interlinked with global systems of regulation such as neo-liberal reforms, restrictions on migratory movements, and the intensification of the struggle against the hashish economy. On the other hand, the study of state reactions to the same subculture allows to highlight changing patterns of criminalisation: the unprecedented emphasis on male delinquency possibly reflects a strategy of discursive de-politicisation of the threats to an established order faced with the challenges of the Arab Spring and its aftermaths.

ICT Enabled Public Services for Migration

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
MIICT, is conceived with the goal of designing, developing and deploying tools that address the challenge of migrant integration through the co-creation of improved ICT-enabled services with migrants, public sector services and NGOs (Non-Governmental-Organisations). Previous research has established that issues of integration, dissemination, employment (and unemployment), incapacity support and education rank highly among migrants of varying demographics; including different age groups, genders, education levels and immigration status [1]. Factors such as autonomy, perception, culture and history, as well as institutional constraints shape the dynamics and experiences of migrants [2], and highlight the complexity of the migration process. This complexity is also said to indicate diversity in migration and integration process as a result of the almost infinite combinations of factors that may impact upon migrants' experiences; influenced by the relationships between the economic, social, political and cultural factors that exist across a given juncture [3].

SOCIAL NETWORK SITES AND SOCIAL SCIENCE

Year 2012
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The last few years have witnessed an explosive increase in the use of social networking sites. Today there are over 500 million on Facebook, and 100 million on QQ - the Chinese equivalent, as well as Orkut and Twitter. The primary purpose of this research project is to determine the nature of these sites and assess the challenge they represent to assumptions at the core of social science with regard to the decline in social relations, including the degree to which these sites have been appropriated to alleviate the negative impact of this decline. It will also focus on trends including the shift to older and less affluent users, and key consequences such as the impact on migrants and on separated families which rely on such communications. It will assess recent academic debates regarding the consequence of social networks for political action and activism, the nature of privacy and the public domain. But the research method is holistic and the seven proposed books will include a general re-thinking of core social science theory in the light of this phenomenon as well as monographs on more specific trends in usage and an overall assessment of social and welfare implications. Research has mainly been on the earlier users, mainly college students and focused on the US. But recent trends suggest future growth in older populations and in middle income regions such as Brazil and Turkey. The research consists of 15 months intensive ethnographic participation and observation, appropriate given the intimate nature of these communications. There will be seven ethnographies all based in small town sites. Some aimed at demographic breadth in China, India, Brazil and Turkey others at depth in Romania, Trinidad and the UK. The study will also include long term online participation in the social networking sites themselves with 150 informants from each country. The intensity of ethnographic depth will be matched by a commitment to comparative analysis and generalisation.

Knowledge migration flows in education hubs: Mobile students enrolled at Indian and British branch campuses in the United Arab Emirates

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The provision of higher education is a key priority for countries around the world, given that knowledge production, innovation and skills are crucial for thriving societies and economies. Even though the number of university enrollments is forecast to rise by 21 million between 2011 and 2020, many countries are struggling to meet demand. Thus different types of knowledge migration are emerging, more students are studying abroad and institutions are establishing offshore branch campuses. Research has been conducted on international student migration and transnational education, but nothing is known about the intersection of these two literatures, i.e. instances when both students and institutions cross international borders. EduHubMig addresses the paucity on this topic through the study of international students enrolled at British and Indian branch campuses in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Statistical analyses of secondary data and an online survey will identify the characteristics and size of this under-studied young migrant group. In addition, a range of qualitative research methods, such as in-depth interviews with students and other stakeholders (n=130), an institutional ethnography of offshore universities and a netnography of the website materials and social media, will uncover the various ways in which different actors shape knowledge flows within education hubs. EduHubMig will enable the Experienced Researcher to develop important new research skills and enhance her career development. The project will provide intensive training and facilitate knowledge exchange between the Experienced Researcher and the colleagues at Utrecht University with whom she shares research interests. The training plan will be closely monitored by her supervisor and supported by dedicated academic and administrative colleagues. The research and excellent training integrated in EduHubMig will help the Experienced Researcher accomplish her career objective of a tenure-track position.

Transnational Digital Networks, Migration and Gender

Year 2010
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The project will explore two interrelated sociocultural dynamics that impact the future of European integration and have a profound effect on the development of a common European culture by challenging established ethnic, class, linguistic and gendered divisions. These are: a.  the rise in migrant mobility and the establishment of transnational migrant networks that enable the construction and negotiation of new forms of hybrid identity and a sense of multiple belonging based on the experiences of cultural diversity and intercultural communication, and b. the spread of transnational digital networks that transcend state boundaries and exclusive national identities and give users the potential to participate directly in processes of cultural production, exchange and consumption particularly through the use of new media technologies.  More specifically the project will address the question of participation of migrant individuals and groups in transnational digital networks by employing innovative methodologies combining online and offline research. Emphasis will be placed on the ability of migrants to access and produce diverse digital spaces and use them to promote their own needs and demands, but also in the possibilities for the promotion of intercultural dialogue and cooperation that open through the development of new interactive media.  Gender will be mainstreamed and treated as an integral aspect of the research design and analysis throughout the project. In particular, the project will explore theways in which changing gender power relations shape identities and performativities in transnational digital and migrant networks. In order to disseminate information and put the findings of the research into practice, the project will develop a transnational migrant digital platform and an interactive digital game.

REBUILD - ICT-enabled integration facilitator and life rebuilding guidance

Year 2019
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
'The REBUILD proposal address immigrant integration through the provision of a toolbox of ICT-based solutions that will improve both the management procedures of the local authorities and the life quality of the migrants. The design approach is user-centered and participated: both target groups (immigrants/refugees and local public services providers) will be part of the user requirement analysis and participants in three 2-days Co-Creation workshops organized in the 3 main piloting countries: Italy, Spain and Greece, chosen also for their being the 'access gates' to Europe for main immigration routes. Users and stakeholders engagement is a key success factor addressed both in the Consortium composition and in its capacity to engage relevant stakeholders external to the project. The key technology solutions proposed are: GDPR-compliant migrants’ integration related background information gathering with user consent and anonymization of personal information; AI-based profile analysis to enable both personalized support and policy making on migration-related issues; AI-based needs matching tool, to match migrant needs and skills with services provided by local authorities in EU countries and labor market needs at local and regional level; a digital companion for migrants enabling personalized two-way communication using chatbots to provide them smart support for easy access to local services (training, health, employment, welfare, etc.) and assessment of the level of integration and understanding of the new society, while providing to local authorities data-driven, easy to use decision supporting tools for enhancing capacities and effectiveness in service provision. Cross-culturality, ethical, accessibility dimensions will be addressed since the very beginning of the project, and validated and assessed in terms of consistency and impact during the project lifespan.'

Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
UniteEurope is an EU-FP7 project that aims at giving the main actors of integration - immigrants and members of the host society - a voice by analysing public social media content generated by citizens, in order to support decision making in urban and pan-European integration policies. The UniteEurope team consists of social scientists and IT specialists from leading universities, municipalities, cities and NGOs from Austria, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden, and it is counseled by various international governmental and non-governmental organisations dealing with migration issues. For more information, visit the Unite Europe website: http://www.uniteeurope.org/ ICMPD was requested to evaluate, as an external ethical advisor, the compliance of the project outputs with ethical standards and guidelines. ICMPD is thus part of the project's Advisory Board.

Migration Trend Analysis

Year 2019
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Considering the political crises that have taken place in recent years in the Middle East and Northern Africa, and potential trends of the future, further migration trends to Europe are to be expected. In order to assess such developments, new methods for monitoring, early detection and trend analysis of migration movements are needed. This project in particular considers the potential usage of satellite imagery, open sources and (public) social media for this purpose. Objectives: • Analysis of satellite images, to better recognise large-scale movements of people and vehicles • Analysis of a variety of data sources from open sources and (public) social media • Fusion of such information across time and geographic space into a visual medium, in order to analyse potential migration flows towards Europe • Ensure all such efforts are in line with legal and ethical requirements Project Partners: Universität für Weiterbildung Krems (Donau-Universität Krems), Zentralanstalt für Meteorologie und Geodynamik, SYNYO GmbH, Bundesministerium für Inneres BM.I, Research Institute AG & Co KG, Bundesministerium für Landesverteidigung

Big Data for 4D Global Urban Mapping – 10^16 Bytes from Social Media to EO Satellites

Year 2017
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
By 2050, around three quarters of the world’s population will live in cities. The new dimension of ongoing global migration into the cities poses fundamental challenges to our societies across the globe. Despite of increasing efforts, global urban mapping still drags behind the geometric, thematic and temporal resolutions of geo-information needed to address these challenges. Nowadays diverse sets of incomplete data exist. For example, Earth observation (EO) satellites reliably provide geodetically accurate large scale geo-information of the cities on a routine basis from space. But the data availability is limited by resolutions and acquisition geometries of the sensors. Complementarily, massive imagery, text messages and GIS data from open sources and social media are temporally quasi-seamless, spatially multi-perspective, but with diversely unknown qualities. With So2Sat I will jointly exploit big data from social media and satellite observations for global urban mapping, and aim at breakthroughs in 3D/4D urban modelling, infrastructure occupancy classification, and very high resolution population density mapping on a global scale for revolutionizing urban geographic research. The following methodological and application objectives will be addressed: improving urban-related information retrieval from EO satellite data (MO1), mining urban imagery and text messages from social media data (MO2), information fusion from heterogeneous data sources (MO3), big data processing (MO4), as well as pilot applications in informal settlements classification (AO1) and global population density estimation (AO2). The outcome of So2Sat will be the first and unique global and consistent spatial data set on urban morphology (3D/4D) of settlements, and a multidisciplinary application derivate assessing population density. This is seen as a giant leap for urban geography research as well as for formation of opinions for stakeholders based on resilient data.
