Event Description

Since the 1990s, homeless people have been a growing social phenomenon and problem in Japan. At first, it triggered repressive policies, such as evictions, from the local authorities. From 2000 however, the local and national authorities moved toward a more inclusive response, constructing shelters and supporting housing projects.
