    Abstract

    This report is written in the context of a larger European Union H2020 funded research project Re-InVest1, and focuses on the structural crisis of family homelessness in Ireland, a direct outcome of long-term disinvestment in social housing, privatization and marketization of social housing, and private housing market failure. Using a human rights and capability theoretical framework and a participatory approach the report is organized around three key themes: a) a critical assessment of Rebuilding Ireland’s over reliance on the private rental sector as the primary mechanism to resolve the social housing deficit and homelessness crisis; b) a review of the effectiveness of the private rental subsidy, homeless Housing Assistance Payment (HAP); c) the development of family hubs (hubs) as an emerging form of emergency accommodation for homeless families.
