Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This comparative report is the 13th in a series of studies led by the European Observatory on Homelessness. The research explores the intersections between prison systems and homelessness across Europe, focusing on the risks of homelessness that can arise following an exit from prison in 13 EU Member States, while also drawing on wider European comparisons from Norway and the UK. The implications of the associations between imprisonment and homelessness for strategy and service design and the ambitions for the European Platform to Combat Homelessness are considered.
