Fördjupningsarbete: Homeless in America | Hemlös i USA

En länge uppsats på engelska, där eleven redogör för hemlöshet i USA ("homelessness in America"). Fokus ligger bland annat på hur det är att vara hemlös, hur hemlöshet uppstår och vilka åtgärder det finns för att minska hemlösheten.

Elevens kommentar

Despite the social laws and the human rights that are constantly in the focus of public debates, one can wonder why this group continues to expand and is still invisible to society in a nation like America. In this report I seek to explain the behavior of homeless people, why they turn out to be homeless and how to prevent homelessness. Homelessness in America will be the main focal point of this report.
