Migration is an integral feature of community development. Flow of new migrants into the community affects not only the individuals themselves but also the environment and the larger society. The society that was present in the past is no longer adaptable to the present and the future. Migration offers opportunities for communities to adapt to new challenges if the process of migration is positive. This served as the motivation for the proposed project, to be able to create an analysis of the data collected from migrants in order to inform policy and create a harmonious transition for newcomers of different ethnicities assisting them to adapt to the specificities of the local environment.This research is informed by studies of migration but focuses more specifically on the ‘Welcoming Communities’ initiative for newcomers in Hamilton, Waikato. With this problem being highlighted, the research seeks to identify the issues that previous migrants had encountered when they moved to Hamilton, as well as, build on the favourable experiences they had. This analysis can inform the city council’s policy development and inform their ‘Welcoming Communities’ initiative to create a year round program for newcomers, both new and old, to support them in their settlement in Hamilton.This literature review will first discuss the theoretical framework that will be used and its importance. It will then introduce the reader to the ‘Welcoming Cities’ initiative and how it has been adopted worldwide. With the initiative being in the centre of the proposed research, it is equally important to analyse the broader status of both international migration and migration in New Zealand and how it will benefit from the adaptation of the Welcoming cities initiative. Lastly, the literature review will focus on local government councils, particularly Hamilton City Council in the Waikato and provide evidence to support the effective adoption and adaptation of the initiative.
