Abstract: The use of ICT by immigrants and ethnic minorities (IEM) has become a topic of European information society policies following the e-inclusion decalrations signed in Riga in June 2006 (Presidency of the EU Council of Ministers 2006). ICT refers here broadly to computers, Internet, mobile phones and other digital devices and their applications. With the aim of extending ICT use and its expected benefits to all segments of society, the Riga declaration set as one of priorities to improve 'the possiblities for economic and social participation and integration, creativity and entrepreneurship of immigrants and minorities by stimulation through their participation in the information society'. In this work, IEM broadly refers to foreign citizens born outside of the EU, also called third-country nationals", and to their children, known as "second generations". Because the origin and rights of immigrants have been constantly evolving along with the formation of the EU and its changing borders, we shall clarify, when needed, the IEM groups we refer to.
