In the book Facing homelessness: Finding inclusionary, collaborative solutions, published by AOSIS Scholarly Books, we face the other, and in facing the other, we face ourselves. This book contributes to an emerging body of knowledge on street homelessness in the South African context. It is meant for researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners who are committed to finding solutions for street homelessness. It offers conceptual frameworks and practical guidelines for a liberating and transformative response to homelessness. It brings together authors from a wide range of disciplines, fusing the rigor of researchers, the vision of activists, and the lived experience of practitioners.
In this volume, the causes of street homelessness in South Africa today, and its different faces, are traced. It critiques singular solutions and interrogates the political, institutional, and moral failures that contribute to the systemic exclusion of homeless persons and other vulnerable populations from society. It proposes rights-based interventions as part of a radical re-imagination of how street homelessness can be ended, one person and one neighbourhood at a time.
