FEANTSA's European Observatory on Homelessness has released two new publications: European Journal of Homelessness: Volume 11, Number 2 & Comparative Studies on Homelessness - Family Homelessness in Europe.
The European Journal of Homelessness is publishe 2-3 times a year and provides a critical analysis of policy and practice on homelessness in Europe for policy makers, practitioners, researchers and academics. It aims to stimulate debate on homelessness and housing exclusion at the European level and to facilitate the development of a stronger evidential base for policy development and innovation.
The Comparative Studies series is published once a year and this year critically assesses the evidence on the nature and extent of family homelessness in Europe and also explores the provision of preventative, support and rehousing services. Family homelessness is disproportionately experienced by lone women parents whose homelessness is frequently triggered by domestic violence. Homeless families tend to be in situations of poverty or low income, but unlike lone homeless adults experiencing recurrent or sustained homelessness, families do not tend to have high or complex needs. This report is the seventh in a series produced by the European Observatory on Homelessness exploring pan-European issues through a questionnaire based approach, using a group of national experts.
