A new way home : experiences of homelessness for young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds /

by Australian Catholic University.

Publisher: Carlton, Vic.Journal of Social Inclusion 2(1) 2011, pp. 39-52 2010; Centre for Multicultural Youth 2010Description: 8 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This article gives voice to refugee young people experiencing homelessness. It is based on a project that conducted interviews with refugee young people and consultations with service providers. The research reveals that the profoundly under-recognised phenomenon of homelessness experienced by young people of refugee background is often hidden and does not match commonly held beliefs about homeless young people. The article examines the nexus between migration and homelessness in young people and how culture and ethnicity impact on young people accessing services. The stereotype of the homeless young person has been in place for many years and has dominated the research literature and the development of services. The study finds that this stereotype is alive and well in the perceptions of refugee young people and the agencies. Young people of refugee background often feel unable to access or attend these services. All the young people interviewed showed a capacity to negotiate new spaces of hope and belonging, despite dwelling in a 'landscape of exclusion? (Sibley 1995)' a testament to their strength, resilience and sense of agency.Availability: (1)

by Horn, Michael | Hanover Welfare Services | Cooke, Michelle.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Hanover Welfare Services 2001Description: 27 p. + appendices.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Includes bibliographical references June 2001Summary: Anyone who has visited US cities, such as Washington or Los Angeles, would be shocked at the level of begging evident in the city streets. At the start of the 21st century, it is a striking paradox to see such high levels of poverty within a country often considered an exemplar of the success of post-industrial capitalist economies. Over recent years, the contrast between affluence and poverty on the streets of Melbourne’s CBD has become a matter of public concern and comment.
