Announcing the publication of the journal
issue n° 1240, entitled:

Mobile phones and the internet cannot in themselves provide solutions 
to the North-South gap, nor to all the problems posed by borders and 
human mobility. They have, however, already revolutionized the ways in 
which immigrants communicate, thanks to their global reach and their 
direct, user-friendly access.

New websites are created by and for immigrants every day. Their 
purposes are manifold: they can be community-based, transnational, and 
oriented toward mutual aid; they can aim at improving intercultural 
dialogue, favoring integration or advancing political struggles; or to 
provide information to broad publics. As for mobile phones, they can be 
used by activists who defend illegal immigrants, but migrants can also 
use them to communicate with their families back home, conduct informal 
businesses, or simply to exist socially when one is without a fixed 
address, a job, or legal recognition.
