Responding To Indigenous Homelessness Edition Of Parity - Call For Contributions

We're calling for contributions to the Te Matapihi co-sponsored September 2016 edition of Parity "Responding to Indigenous Homelessness in Australia and New Zealand"

Indigenous people in both Australia and New Zealand people experience homelessness at rates that far exceeds their representation both in the population as a whole and also as a proportion of all people experiencing homelessness.
Indigenous homelessness is framed as a significant ongoing and continually redefined “problem” for government, policy makers and service providers in both countries.

Whilst the Indigenous peoples of Australia and New Zealand differ in their experiences of homelessness, there are commonalities established through shared experiences of ongoing colonisation and dispossession. 

This edition of Parity is dedicated to the examination and discussion of the various policy and practice responses to Indigenous homelessness in Australia and New Zealand, what these responses have in common, where they differ and what can be learned from each other.
