Based on 14 interviews with asylum seekers in two refugee camps in Denmark and six officials, this study found that refugees rely mainly on their cellphones for communication, news about their home country and Denmark, practical information, and personal entertainment. Although the refugees are now safe from violence, they continue to experience difficulties accessing information due to various barriers.
