Part of the Comparative and International Education book series (CIEDV)


Analysing the phenomenon of the homeless – the very definition of which is complex and controversial – means opening up an extensive and articulate reflection on interlinked aspects of urban complexity, poverty, marginality, difficulties affecting young people, the social exclusion of weak segments of the populations (women, the elderly, immigrants). It also opens up the themes of living, citizenship, social insecurity, economic precariousness, the welfare system and social policies.
