|Abstract||Networks are a fundamental part of the various connections that occur between people and places and help to illuminate and facilitate existing forms and processes of migration as well as issues related to incorporation of immigrants. This report|
reviews the literature on networks to look particularly at how networks are understood across disciplines and hence can be utilised both for furthering understanding in new research and in policy applications. The report focuses specifically on the utility of networks in the realm involving both migration and economic
activity and incorporation of migrants. âNetworksâ are significant in the context of globalisation and related interconnectivity as they can be utilised not only to identify key actors, but also as an explanatory mechanism for processes. Furthermore, network analysis allows a dynamic look at interactions impacting on migration as well as on economic activity. In this way, networks relate to any range of policy goals: be they for migration (such as entry policies, work permits, or integration)or economic development (such as sector targeting, policies to advance immigrant entrepreneurship, or return migration programs). Although sending countries are briefly aressed, the report focuses primarily on the European as the receiving context.
