'My life just went zig zag': Refugee young people and homelessness
Couch, Jen. (2011). 'My life just went zig zag': Refugee young people and homelessness. Youth Studies Australia. 30(2), pp. 22 - 31.
This article focuses on the voices of refugee young people experiencing homelessness. It is based on a broader research project that involved interviews with refugee young people, consultations with service providers and a review of available research and literature relating to refugee youth homelessness. The research revealed that the phenomenon of homelessness experienced by young people of refugee background is under-recognised, often hidden and does not match commonly held beliefs about homeless young people. It also found that young people of refugee background often felt unable to access homelessness agencies.
