Director, Canadian Homelessness Research Network
Stephen Gaetz is committed to a research agenda that foregrounds social justice and attempts to make research relevant to policy and program development. His research interests include homelessness, youth culture, criminal victimization and community development. He has published a book on community-based responses to youth problems in Ireland, and numerous articles in a wide range of journals. His research on homeless youth has focused on their economic strategies, health, education and legal and justice issues. More recently, he was involved in the establishment of the Canadian Homelessness Research Network (funded with a seven year SSHRC grant) and the Homeless Hub, a clearing house for homelessness research.
