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 and provides a robust evidence base to reimagine how
we respond to homelessness.
