The objective of the workshop was to analyse the potential of ICT (in particular social computing) and social capital, for the social and economic integration and participation of Immigrants and Ethnic Minorities (IEM). This objective had been defined as a priority in the Riga Ministerial Declaration on eInclusion. The report also contains policy recommendations, based on the analysis presented, with a view to contributing to the preparation of the 2008 eInclusion Initiative.
