Brief description

A comparative investigation of homelessness among local white, ethnic and migrant young men and women. This research project focuses on homeless young people and those at risk of homelessness - through understanding their life-trajectories, identifying crucial cycles and points of reinsertion. Young people participate in the project in three ways: though providing their own perspectives on their life trajectories, through the involvement of ex-homeless young people as co-researchers, and in the National Workshops that review the findings of the research. The four countries in the study include the UK, Netherlands, Portugal and the Czech Republic. Dr Joan Smith, CHCR director will be leading the UK study, with Nora Duckett
