Welfare Reform on the Web (October 2009): Homelessness - overseas

The hidden millions: homelessness in developing countries

G. Tipple and S. Speak

London: Routledge, 2009

This book explores the extent, causes and characteristics of homelessness in developing countries. It brings together a major review of literature and empirical case studies and challenges preconceptions by exploring the human context as well as policy and planning. Drawing on local research in nine countries in the global south, this book offers an insight into the lives of homeless people, public perceptions of homelessness, and the policies and interventions which might variously increase or reduce homelessness.
