About this book

Introduction

Drawing on a broad range of international studies, this book looks in detail at how youth homelessness is variously defined, measured and explained, as well as discussing the solutions which are usually proposed for it. Yet this book is more than simply a description of youth homelessness. It uses original material to show how youth homelessness, like other issues, can be differently presented by agencies, the media, academics, politicians and by those directly affected - in this case, young homeless people themselves.
