We live in a digital world undergoing contradictory deep transformations. Digitality, however, can neither be seen as some miraculous transformatory manna from heaven, nor as the prelude of a world of total surveillance. Digitality and the new knowledge forms contained and transmitted are a vital organizing force. This force generates and shapes various mobile commons which are an essential acquisition resulting from the collective power to reshape the world of people on the move. In the current austerity-and-crisis times, migrant mobility plays a major role in the reconfiguration of the Social Question. In this sense mobile commons are revolutionizing and transforming the world.
