European Journal of Homelessness, Volume 9.1, June 2015

The impact of the global financial crisis on the extent and experience of homelessness was the broad theme of the 9th annual research conference of the European Observatory on Homelessness, held in Warsaw on the 19th of September 2014. A selection of the papers presented are included in this edition of the European Journal of Homelessness (EJH), and collectively they provide a sense of the challenges facing policy makers, service providers and most importantly the consequences for those experiencing homelessness and housing exclusion. This edition of the EJH also includes papers not presented at the conference following a recommendation from the International Advisory Committee that this edition of the journal should not be restricted to those papers addressing the theme of the annual conference.
