Reimagining Homelessness - For Policy and Practice (Paperback): Eoin O'Sullivan Reimagining Homelessness - For Policy and Practice (Paperback)
Eoin O'Sullivan
R374 Discovery Miles 3 740 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Available Open Access under CC-BY-NC licence. 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 and provides a robust evidence base to reimagine how we respond to homelessness.

Crime Control in Ireland - The Politics of Intolerance (Paperback): Ian O'Donnell, Eoin O'Sullivan Crime Control in Ireland - The Politics of Intolerance (Paperback)
Ian O'Donnell, Eoin O'Sullivan; Volume editing by Carol Coulter
R237 Discovery Miles 2 370 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Public and political interest in issues of crime and punishment in Ireland has grown substantially in recent years. However, the debate tends to be poorly informed and rarely rises above the level of hollow rhetoric. This is an area where important decisions are made in a vacuum. Rhetoric and reaction, rather than reason and principle, are the primary forces shaping criminal justice policy.Over the past five years the official crime rate has declined sharply. This has been offered as support for the politics of zero tolerance. However there is a range of alternative explanations which are rarely discussed but equally plausible. The reduction in recorded crime has been accompanied by a major redirection of criminal justice policy." The War on Crime" explores why a punitive political consensus has emerged at a time when, according to the Garda statistics, society has become much safer. The book provides a radical critique of criminal statistics, locates Irish crime patterns in a European context and suggests a new framework for analyzing trends in crime and its management.

Ending Homelessness? - The Contrasting Experiences of Denmark, Finland and Ireland (Hardcover): Mike Allen, Lars Benjaminsen,... Ending Homelessness? - The Contrasting Experiences of Denmark, Finland and Ireland (Hardcover)

Homelessness is on the increase in most European states and remains at stubbornly high levels across developed nations. This is despite increased policy attention, economic provision and the implementation of strategies that have promised to stop homelessness in its tracks, rather than simply manage the crisis. Providing an in-depth exploration of the experiences of Ireland, Denmark and Finland in their various initiatives designed to end homelessness, this book presents an authoritative comparative account of policies and strategies that have worked, along with an exposition of those that have not. Making an invaluable and timely contribution to the current debate, it provides essential policy lessons for the multiple jurisdictions seeking to successfully bring homelessness to an end.

"Lives in Crisis" reports on the findings of a qualitative study of 40 homeless young people in Dublin city. It documents their journeys "into" homelessness and traces the life experiences and events subsequent to them becoming homeless. Among other issues, the book deals with the experience of being homeless; the challenge of surviving on the street; relationships and friendships; drug use and criminal activity; experiences of bullying, violence and victimization; health and health-related behaviour; and, help-seeking and coping strategies and service use and service utilization."Lives in Crisis" provides a detailed overview and discussion of the prevalence of youth (and adult) homelessness in Ireland and outlines the services and interventions designed to meet the needs of homeless youth in an Irish context. Written in a highly accessible style, the book for the first time tells the real-life stories of homeless young people in Dublin. In their own words, these young people give us a better understanding of the experience of homelessness based on their living "out of home", that is, on the street, in hostels or in other unstable living situations. This groundbreaking book explores the lives of homeless youth, their accounts of how events unfolded in their lives and the meanings they attach to becoming and being homeless.
