Researchers from three universities in Wales with specialisms in media, geography and policy research came together to conduct a systematic review of evidence in the interdisciplinary area of communication technologies, and connectivity of minority communities. Considering the Welsh context this work has aimed to enhance existing understanding of the role of new technologies in connectivity and inclusion of minority groups. Key gaps were identified in knowledge of the use of technologies by minority groups and challenges were highlighted in relation to accessing evidence outside of the public domain
