Intersections between domestic violence, the home, and homelessness are not simply cause and effect where violence leads to homelessness. Rather they are complicated by the political and material nature of housing, the prevalence of multiple housing types and living arrangements, and wider political, economic, and cultural contexts. The emotionality of the home is also key to this relation. Domestic violence itself is a complex social and power relationship and at a global scale is variously defined, differs in prevalence, and in cultural and institutional responses. It both shapes, and is in turn shaped by, the home and homelessness. © 2012 Copyright © 2012 Elsevier Ltd All rights reserved..
