In the past two decades, homelessness has emerged as a major social issue in most developed nations of the world. However, most of the research has come from one nation, the US. This collection of original articles includes literature reviews, studies comparing homelessness across nations, papers that examine specific issues in relation to homelessness in particular nations, and policy oriented discussions; all by authors and/or based on data from outside of the US. The papers highlight both similarities and differences in the status of homelessness and research approaches used to understand this social problem in the US and other developed nations.
