Accounting for the geographies of debt may require types of empirical and theoretical analysis sensitive to the integrated character of relations of debt ‘situation’. Analysing debt situations opens up the possibility of questioning the manner in which a particular debt encounter or circumstance is composed in its relation to others, the texture of which can fade from view when attempts are made to delimit where an encounter begins or ends, either spatially or temporally. In the process, attention is drawn to the importance of understanding both the situated character of life in debt and the variation in how the binds of debt are constituted, which can on occasion be more fragile than expected.
