Along with an increase of temporary forms of migration, multilocational livelihoods and household arrangements are on the rise in many countries and world regions. Although the academic literature – and much more the policy and planning discourse – about multilocality has evolved separately in the Global South and North, we argue that the phenomenon should be looked at in a more integrated way. This is since important background factors prompting new (often temporary) forms of migration and multilocational households are relevant in both contexts: The globalization and flexibilisation of labour markets, changing political geographies and urbanization dynamics, the development of rapid communication and transport technologies and the modification of family patterns and gender relations.
