dc.description.abstractThis research aims to understand the factors that lead to social exclusion among foreign wives in Singapore and the role that Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) plays in social inclusion and empowerment. There has been a rising trend of migration through marriage in Singapore, especially between foreign brides and Singaporean men. Present literature shows that ICTs can be a source of social support to help migrants adapt to life in their host country [4]. We found that, although not a direct cause of empowerment, ICTs act as an agent to enhance social, political and economic inclusion. Through our paper we provide a starting point for discussion of recommendations.en_US
