The paper explores labour exploitation threat to specifically determine the migrants’ capacity to cope with the threat and recommend factors for enhancing the migrants’ capacities to cope with the threat. Data collection includes literature review, interviews and focus group discussion. Findings reveals that migrants drew mainly on individual and household levels, to develop reactive and proactive capacities of coping with various labour exploitation threats, suggesting that more potential could be tapped from meso, national and international levels to support the migrants to more competently cope with the threats. The findings of this study shed new light on an alternative way of understanding labour exploitation threat in the urban context and ways of building capacities of urban migrants and other vulnerable groups involved in threats to more competently cope with the threats.
