Cities are crucial actors regarding the acceptance and integration of migrants into the host communities, however, they face various obstacles to reaching their full potential due to institutional and political constraints. Nonetheless, in recent years, cities have become more present in the global arena and have been advocating causes more intensely. One mechanism for cities to evade political restraints, advocate their demands, and exploit their potential to adequately address migration issues is through city networks. Most city networks are formed regarding climate and health policy advocation, however more and more migration networks emerged over the past decades. The question remains whether they are effective tools for cities to address migration challenges and create action plans. Thus, this thesis examines what an effective network constitutes and the potential of the network Arrival Cities. The research is based on a systematic literature review constituting 17 articles, as well as a document analysis of the network Arrival Cities. The analysis concluded that migration city networks bare the potential to support cities in the creation of policy outputs in form of action plans and concepts.
