Women and Homelessness in Europe: Pathways, Services and Experiences

Synopsis

"Women have been neglected and marginalised in much contemporary, European housing policy and practice. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the development of policies on homelessness. This book examines the gender-specific factors leading to homelessness and the ability of women to access appropriate services for rehousing and social integration. The report draws on the national reports of the correspondents of the European Observatory on Homelessness of FEANISA. This unique volume provides for the first time a picture of the nature and causes of homelessness among women across the European member states. Its findings will stimulate further research and encourage transnational cooperation in the development of appropriate policies and support services. Women and homelessness is essential reading for policy makers, service providers, social workers, researchers and students of housing and housing policy."
