IGF 2013 showed that the topic of services for migrants and displaced people was not covered except the workshop which representatives of the NRU HSE organized. In 2014 we propose to be more focused on services which help to socialize, assimilate, and propose to discuss particular educational services available for displaced people and migrants.

We would like to discuss the role of migrants and displaced people in the Information society.
Putting connectivity and ICT services within reach of vulnerable populations and especially migrants and displaced people is important to ensure the participation of all in sustainable human and economic development.

The trends in mobile connectivity, called a “mobile miracle” by the ITU, are not just technology enhancements. They are used by governments and different stakeholders to bring services to their citizens, including educational services.

We propose to focus on ICT services and solutions, which can help migrants, and displaced people to better socialize, assimilate and become an integral part of the public local life.
We would like to discuss particular Information society educational services and capacity building programs available or to be developed for displaced people and migrants.
We would like also raising the question of “virtual” universities and MOOCs projects and how these initiatives could assist and help displaced people and migrants to have the access to fare education.

The right to the fare education and access to the information is the Human right, which has to be ensured for everyone, including migrants and displaced people. The Information society Initiatives could help to better ensure the access to education and to information for the fragile groups of society: migrants and displaced people.
