This paper draws on the analysis of vulnerability developed by Watts and Bohle (1993), from which the title “The Causal Structure of Vulnerability” originates. I owe great thanks to Michael Watts for comments on earlier drafts and to Ben Wisner for editorial assistance. This paper is derived from the introduction to Ribot et al. 1995.
