This panel is an Activist-Scholar Special Session. Panelists examine the international question of whether housing is a right, and the relation of that question to increasing levels of homelessness; the hardships created by complex contracting systems required of non-profits that are providing homeless services since neoliberal restructuring; and the social ethics of using “tiny homes” as a homeless intervention.
