    Towards a Contextualised and Intersectional Understanding of Migration in India

    Author : Priya Deshingkar | Published On: 2016

    Dr Priya Deshingkar is Research Director of the Migrating out of Poverty Research Consortium and Senior Research Fellow in the School of Global Studies, University of Sussex. Her research focuses on internal migration and poverty with a focus on precarious occupations, debt migration, labour rights and agency. In this lecture she talks about the poor migrants, when they are counted, are lumped into a single undifferentiated category. Policy in relation to migrants is thus based on a lot of assumptions.
