Short summary
Senegalese households have adapted to a resource-poor environment through long-standing mobility-based strategies. Drawing on researches in Senegal, Italy, and Spain, this paper shows that in the global age vulnerability and structural constraints have an increasing impact on such strategies, in particular by influencing households’ access to different migration destinations and their ability to adopt effective translocal livelihood strategies.
