WORLDS OF HOMELESSNESS - DAY 4: Knowledge Production and ways forward

Homelessness is approached differently in various disciplines and among different countries. “How is knowledge about homelessness generated? Can we compare homelessness and housing precarity in Germany and the US? How do issues around homelessness connect to informal settlements in the global South? How do we collect data, and how is this data used? How can the knowledge and needs of communities themselves become important drivers for knowledge production and ways forward?” were the key questions addressed by the panelist's presentations and the follow-up panel- and audience discussions on day 4.
