Shining a Light on the Intersectionalities of Homelessness
Homelessness/Displacement and Trauma is an issue that must be addressed as it is integral in achieving the 2030 agenda. Significant to both the Global North and the Global South, progress in achieving the eradication of these underpin and can hinder the success and achievement of all the Sustainable Development Goals. As advocates for individuals and families experiencing Homelessness and Displacement, UNANIMA International is trying to bring the voices of women and children from around the world to the global stage and has recently released two new research publications.
This publication includes case studies of Family Homelessness in Australia, The Philippines, Greece, Canada, and Indigenous Communities. Expert testimonies and voices of lived experience, paired with expert analysis on Family Homelessness/Displacement and Trauma, and literature reviews, give insight to the current reality of increasing Family Homelessness and housing insecurity around the globe and the varying manifestations of these issues.
This publication explores the intersections between Family Homelessness and topics of the United Nations 2030 Agenda, including Sustainable Development Goals 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 14, 15, and 17. It is concluded that Family Homelessness is a multilateral issue, which deserves attention from the United Nations and international community, including listening to the grassroots experiences and testimonies of homelessness, displacement, housing insecurity, and trauma.
