SINE-Mandate |

Following § 67 ff. SGB XII, those affected or endangered by homelessness are entitled to consultation and support. On a municipal level, the implementation of homeless charity is organised in different ways. As the placement of homeless is the responsibility of the municipality, it is less clear who is responsible for further support, which unequally distributed within Bavaria.

The research project analyses the interfaces of placement in police and regulatory law in municipal responsibility, in the context of § 67 SGB XII, in Swabia. The project runs in cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Kempten and funded by the Bayerische Staatsministerium für Familie, Arbeit und Soziales (StMAS).


Methods |

Several case studies are conducted in different administrative districts and cities. Hereby, expert interviews are conducted with the staff of public order offices, social services and other relevant institutions, including a content analysis.
