Publisher's Synopsis

Housing and Domestic Abuse provides an analysis of how housing policy has been historically utilised in responding to domestic abuse. The authors trace the history of policy from the feminist roots of the refuge movement, to the use of 'anti-social behaviour' legislation to address abuse, and the current proposals being considered.

The UK government and devolved governments in Scotland and Wales are currently making significant changes to the ways they address domestic abuse, including involving housing policy in their responses. This book provide details of the differential approaches of the Scottish and Welsh governments and proposes a 'whole housing approach' to addressing abuse. Readers will gain a detailed knowledge of historic, and current policy and practice in this area. They will also benefit from insights from two of the leading scholars in their respective fields of housing and domestic abuse policy and practice.

This book will be of interest to academics, policy makers and practitioners across the fields of housing and domestic abuse policy and practice, as well as students studying social policy more broadly.
