Immigration and Homelessness in Europe

Immigration and Homelessness in Europe

Bill Edgar, Joe Doherty, and Henk Meert 2004

This book makes a timely contribution to the current political and policy debate on immigration to Europe. Set within the context of immigrant social exclusion and marginalisation, it examines in detail the problematic relationship between migrants, their access to adequate housing and increasing vulnerability to homelessness. Drawing on the national reports of the correspondents of the European Observatory on Homelessness, the book provides a comparative analysis, identifying the commonalities and differences across 15 member states of the EU.
