Cover of the Homelessness of New Internationalist

Homelessness

Homelessness

The market is broken. The price of housing is through the roof. Social housing is neglected.

In major cities around the globe ordinary people can no longer afford to buy or rent basic accommodation. Incomes stagnate while the gap between the 1 per cent and the rest of us widens. Housing insecurity and homelessness are the inevitable result. Families find refuge in temporary shelters or with relatives; young people couch surf; the addicted and the mentally disturbed drift to the street. Treating housing as a commodity rather than a human right leaves people homeless and hurting. This needs to change.

This edition of New Internationalist looks at how to prevent homelessness and outlines the steps to a world where everyone is safely housed.

Freedom in sight?

West Papua stands on a knife-edge between freedom and disaster. In this issue, we hear the voices of people living under Indonesian occupation and fighting to be free. We learn about the unifying power of Melanesian music, expose the extractive companies that are profiting from Papuan repression, and hear Indigenous leaders lay out their visions of the new country they want to build.
