Abstract

This qualitative research looks at the liberating and constraining impact of undocumented migration on women's bargaining potential in the informal economy. Bargaining has been operationalised through the interaction of the micro and macro spheres of family, norms, state and market on low-skilled undocumented Bangladeshi women in India.
