Wohnungsflüchter in the City of Munich

Wohnungsflüchter in the City of Munich

Client: Landeshauptstadt München (2007-2008) | Area: Social Work & Social Risks

Main Interest |

At single public places in Munich, the situation is affected by an increasing number of people with social problems: homeless, ‘Wohnungsflüchter’, people with a distinct addiction issue and groups of youths. This development causes problems and complaints from residents and shop owners due to a questionable using of these places including public drinking, stealing, inadequate hygiene, annoyance of passers-by etc.


SINE-Mandate |

Acquiring the status quo of this problem, SINE first implements a city-wide situation analysis. Public places known for problems with homeless, ‘Wohnungsflüchter’, drug takers and youths were analysed looking at who uses those places in which way and how often as well as who considers problems and why.

The second step focuses on a cost-effectiveness-analysis. The special problems concerning ‘Wohnungsflüchter’ respectively frequenters are analysed at selected places. Applying a social environment orientated approach, SINE indicated the special needs of all affected parties (loafers, residents, shop owners, street worker, the police, social and political institutions etc.) by use of interviews and evaluated existing services for ‘Wohnungsflüchter’.
