Policies and programmes to end homelessness in Australia: learning from international practice

19 Oct 2012
Description

This article examines the manner in which Australian homelessness policy has been converging with international policy directions.
More specifically, the article scrutinises Australian social programmes adopted from the UK and USA as a means to achieve strategic goals of reducing homelessness.
It argues that although Australian homelessness policy objectives are converging with international policy, Australian programmes modelled on international successes do not have some of the elements shown elsewhere to be crucial for achieving sustainable reductions in homelessness. This may become central to explaining programme outcomes in future years.
