Following the Riga Ministerial Declaration on eInclusion (June 2006), the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) carried out, on the request of DG Information Society and Media, Unit H3 (eInclusion) of the European Commission, a study on ‘The potential of ICT for the promotion of cultural diversity in the EU: the case of economic and social participation and integration of immigrants and ethnic minorities’. A broad overview of policies and ICT-related initiatives was initially conducted in all the EU27 Member States, followed by deeper research of ICT usage in four selected countries: France, Germany, Spain and the UK.
This report is one of the outcomes of the study and provides the in-depth analysis of ICT usage and role in three different contexts in Germany. The first two cases explore the role of ICT for the digital and social inclusion and/or the socio-cultural integration of immigrants and ethnic minorities, while the last case addresses aspects related to their economic participation.
