Description

This research explores the topic of imprisonment and homelessness across the EU. Release from prison can be a critical transition period that may involve the risk of homelessness if a housing solution and adequate support are not provided prior to and following release. A prison sentence may also result in homelessness when no mechanisms are in place to maintain an existing tenancy in the meantime. The study explores the existing evidence on the relationship between homelessness and imprisonment and current policy and practice in trying to prevent homelessness on leaving prison in 13 EU Member States and draws comparisons with two further European countries.
