Full project publication list includes four separate works: Positioning Paper, This study aimed to improve our empirical and conceptual understanding of the precursors of homelessness among vulnerable groups. Such a study had not been undertaken previously in Australia. Specifically, the research aimed to improve understanding of the social, economic and cultural factors that cause homelessness among vulnerable populations, paying particular attention to the relationships between social exclusion and the risk of living in tenuous housing situations. The study drew on the concept of incipient homelessness to capture the precarious position of those moving through the marginal housing sector.
