Conference Papers: Homelessness Research Conference, April 2012

The Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) and RMIT University co-hosted the inaugural Homelessness Research Conference in Melbourne on 19-20 April 2012.

The conference provided an opportunity to hear from many of Australia’s leading researchers, to not only get a sense of what research is currently underway and what research methods and approaches are being used, but also to consider what further homelessness research is needed. The conference also heard keynote presentations from international experts Professor Dennis Culhane, School of Social Policy and Practice, University of Pennsylvania (USA) and Dr Volker Busch-Geertsema, Chair, European Observatory on Homelessness (Germany).

The Program Booklet, Conference Report and presentations from both days of the conference are available from the AHURI website.
