Despite their productivity and contribution to urban development, homeless migrants are seen as problematic and their needs largely overlooked by policy. For many, migration and/or homelessness can form a part of a well-planned and successful strategy for individual or household survival or improvement. Nevertheless, other migrants find themselves living in a prolonged state of liminal homelessness, unable to return home or improve their situation. This paper uses a concept of 'consequential context' to explore the relationship between migration and homelessness and the factors which may serve to trap migrants in situations of abject poverty in the city.
