As part of our research, and in the interests of disseminating this as widely as possible, we are compiling a database of publications on the use of digital technologies by migrants, focusing particularly on South-South migration. This page provides a short introduction to this body of literature as it relates to our Ethiopia-South Africa corridor, by featuring some of the most interesting work in the field. Inclusion in this listing does not, though, indicate that we or other members of the Hub agree with the arguments contained therein.
