dc.description.abstract The paper studies the ways in which migration shapes and is shaped by household structures, and how these dynamics in household composition affect people’s adaptive capacity in rural and urban areas in South India. Overall migration typically involves higher workloads for women, whether they are left behind in the village or migrate into urban spaces. Often rural-to-urban migrants move into precarious situations: they inhabit low lying areas prone to local flooding; their housing is often temporary and illegal; they enter informal and often dangerous jobs. This paper adds to the literature on translocality and its impacts on household risk management and well-being. en
