It is well-established that personal links to previous migrants increase the propensity for others to migrate, whereas networks in the settlement phase have a variety of roles going beyond a mere information transmission. Social networks surrounding migrants and their significant others have important roles, for example, in supporting each other during finding accommodation, employment, and education places. Local and transnational networks also play a major role in migrants’ well-being through providing emotional support and an environment for belonging. Nonetheless, because every inclusion in one network entails an exclusion from another, they can be divisive and result in segregation in schools and neighbourhoods which poses a great risk for societies to be cohesive and sustainable. While the network approach in migration studies has always been on the agenda, application of network analysis in different phases to different ends has only recently been on the rise.
