This chapter summarises the book's empirical findings before presenting its main theoretical contributions, using two case studies to illustrate why it is useful to apply a livelihood strategy approach to migration. It notes that this approach is holistic, and perhaps this is the reason why it is not more popular, since it demands a wide-ranging exploration of the environments from which migrants originate. It explains that understanding livelihoods means understanding cultural as well as economic contexts.
