Homelessness in Greece
Some researchers point to problems of weak data, resulting in significant challenges to documenting both visible and hidden homelessness in Greece. Despite the deterioration of the problem, policies have been developed to address the issue.
One study found that in Athens, the majority of homeless individuals became homeless in the past five years. Some news reports stated that economic hardship has led to a rise in homeless children in Greece. Many of these children are between the ages of 5 and 14.
Scholars maintain that the issue of homeless children in Greece is an under-researched area, with weak policy responses. It is a problem associated with recent patterns of migration to Greece, mainly from Albania.
