Housing vulnerable populations in Australia and beyond

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Housing vulnerable populations remains a significant political and public policy
challenge around the world. Accordingly, there is considerable research, policy
and practice interest in understanding, achieving and sustaining housing outcomes
for vulnerable individuals and groups within housing markets, much of it couched
within a human rights framework. Housing vulnerability at its extreme and unac-
ceptable end is represented by homelessness, whether constituted as rooflessness
or rootlessness. Homelessness is a wicked problem internationally, and it remains
the ultimate consequence and indicator of housing and other system failures.
