Reimagining Homelessness: For Policy and Practice

Autor Eoin O'Sullivan
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 15 apr 2020
The number of people experiencing homelessness is rising in the majority of advanced Western economies. Responses to these rising numbers are variable but broadly include elements of congregate emergency accommodation, long-term supported accommodation, survivalist services and degrees of coercion. It is evident that these policies are failing.
Using contemporary research, policy and practice examples, this book uses the Irish experience to argue that we need to urgently reimagine homelessness as a pattern of residential instability and economic precariousness regularly experienced by marginal households. Bringing to light stark evidence, it proves that current responses to homelessness only maintain or exacerbate this instability rather than arrest it. Eoin O'Sullivan provides a robust evidence base to reimagine how we respond to homelessness.
