The origins and post-Covid future of Housing First approaches to homelessness
With Tom Baker & Nevil Pierse
PANZ hosts the first of its series of webinars on Aotearoa New Zealand population issues. Tom Baker (Auckland University) provides an overview of the origins of Housing First, arguing that its global spread has depended both on new understandings of the homeless population and its political malleability. Nevil Pierse (Otago University) talks about how Housing First has been implemented as part of the People’s Project in Kirikiriroa/Hamilton. Includes panel discussion.
