What makes an arrival city successful?

Quotes taken from Cities of Migration (2012) Good Ideas from Successful Cities- Municipal Leadership on Immigrant Integration –

”Successful cities value diversity as an essential component of community identity, political culture and economic well-being.”

”Policies and processes like these go to the heart of city budgeting, its tax base and public accountability. They send a message to all city residents and stakeholders that the city is theirs and its doors are open for business.”
