Cost reduction was accomplished through this sector’s nature as a hidden economy— which also helped the producers to evade taxation. This state of informality suited the economic interests of the big retailers and of the male ethnic middlemen contractors, who managed to keep their female workforce under control through bonds of family and ethnic-community allegiance and dominance (Mitter 1985; Schierup et al. 2006: 235–237).

NELM theories still largely fail to take account of the many non-economic factors that shape migration. Collinson (2009) suggests that there is a need for a political-economy approach to migration that links the analysis of local-level factors that influence people’s migration decisions and livelihood strategies, with political, economic, and social factors at various levels that affect the agency of migrants. That would mean, as Collinson (following Gold 2005) suggests, examining the inter-linkages between different migration streams; the importance of agency, autonomy, perceptions, cultural and historical factors and institutional constraints; the complex multi-level and transnational nature of migration; and the importance of social groups and relationship—including migration networks—for shaping migration dynamics and migration experiences, straddling migration ‘sending’, ‘receiving’ and ‘transit’ locations, and a range of actors within them (Collinson 2009: 5–6).
