The chapter presents a political ecology conceptualization of the links betweenflooding and migration in ASEAN, which challenges simple readings of flooding as a singular driver of migration. The focus is on how migration influences vulnerability across diverse environmental, social and policy contexts. The framework set out in the chapter has been developed through a comparative empirical study of diverse forms of migration and flooding in various ASEAN settings (Thailand, Cambodia,the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines) undertaken by the author in collaboration with scholars based in Southeast Asia.
