While geography has traditionally ‘looked down’ in the search for social justice, a recent trend in the social sciences has argued for thinking through privilege. Taking this call seriously, we provide an intersectional analysis of transnational circulation, as one of the characteristics of elites, to argue that an understanding of privilege in migration is critical to combatting inequalities. This leads us to argue for the need to explore privilege in relation to precarity and vulnerability. We conclude by advancing a research agenda on privilege in (migration) geography that draws upon a feminist ethics of responsibility.
