The Multilevel Contexts of Exiting Homelessness

The Multilevel Contexts of Exiting Homelessness

(p.179) Conclusion The Multilevel Contexts of Exiting Homelessness
Better Must Come

Matthew D. Marr

Cornell University Press

This concluding chapter summarizes the theoretical implications of the study's findings in terms of sociological research on homelessness as well as critical urban studies of globalization and marginalized populations. It also outlines the policy implications of the analysis. It argues that in order to end homelessness in global cities, localities must extend dialogue and efforts beyond those focused on persons on the streets over the long term, and promote forgiving contexts at multiple levels that can make even short-term homelessness a rarity. A forgiving context at the global level would be one in which dialogue about various forms of capitalism and welfare regimes and their strengths and weaknesses is encouraged and used as a springboard for action and policy change.

Keywords:   homelessness, urban studies, sociological research, globalization, forgiving contexts, capitalism, welfare regimes
