The Dynamics of Homelessness: Research and Policy

The Dynamics of Homelessness: Research and Policy

Edited by:

May 2021 | 332 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Social scientific study has long contributed to popular perceptions of homelessness as a static, lasting condition. On the contrary, this volume of The ANNALS illuminates both the dynamic nature of homelessness and the factors responsible for its changes.

Capitalizing on the availability of over-time data, this volume’s macro-micro perspective considers both structural forces, from income inequality to social exclusion, and the personal circumstances that dictate individuals’ homeless trajectories. Its papers, moreover, evaluate the effectiveness of homelessness policies, revealing new avenues not just to manage homelessness, but to end it.
