Asylum seekers from all over the globe flee to Europe in an attempt to escape the war and dictatorship in countries like Syria, Libya and Nepal. Particularly in the 21st century, smartphones and various applications are being used during the course of their journey and upon arrival in Europe. It has been observed that the use of social media has been a double-edged sword. Facebook, for instance, has been used to organize various initiatives with a view to aiding asylum seekers and refugees upon their arrival but also, it has been used by citizens to coordinate protests against them. Furthermore, the internet and social media can also serve as effective tools of surveillance by various governments and other organizations. The aim of this file is to explore the matter from the points of view of asylum seekers, refugees, academics, researchers, and refugee center workers.
