Homeless Romanians on the streets of Scandinavia come from conditions of extreme poverty
This report presents the first results from a quantitative study of a population that is not easy to reach by means of conventional survey methods. The researchers have therefore applied a methodology specifically designed for use with such ‘hard-to-reach’ populations. Mapping and analysing the situation for street workers from Romania on the streets of the Scandinavian capitals has been a challenging and yet extremely rewarding task. 1,269 migrants have trusted us with detailed and extensive information about their coping strategies on the streets, their living conditions at home, their reasons for migration and their expectations for the future.
