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. Specifically, the book: assesses the impact of recent changes in European housing markets, especially their commodification and privatisation; examines how immigrants' vulnerability to homelessness is reflected in their legal status; explores the effect that growing numbers of migrants and their changing demographics have had on providers of homelessness services in Europe. Immigration and homelessness in Europe is essential reading for policy makers, service providers, social workers, researchers and students of housing and housing policy.
