Research practice

One of the first things we are doing in the Haiti-Brazil corridor is to try to understand how migrants currently use digital technologies, and so together with our colleagues in INURED, we have created a short online survey in English and Creole for Haitian migrants, returned migrants and their families to complete (this takes less than 15 minutes, and was launched in September 2020).  Please do share the link widely amongst migrants in or from Haiti (Brazilian version to follow in collaboration with our colleagues in IMJA).


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 Haiti-Brazil corridor, by featuring some of the most interesting work in the field. Not all of these publications explicitly address the use of digital technologies by migrants in this corridor, but they do provide valuable insights that have framed our understanding of the issues.  Many of these references were curated by Francisca Sassetti as part of her doctoral research. We welcome suggestions for other key references that should be included here. Inclusion in this listing does not, though, indicate that we or other members of the Hub agree with the arguments contained therein.
