A Set of Indicators to Compare Local Governance Arrangements on Homelessness

Nienke Boesveldt


This article describes a method of comparing new governance arrangements on homelessness by studying three key features: policy, structure and management style. This is done by using a set of indicators that has been developed to measure variations in such arrangements. These indicators are based on an interdisciplinary theoretical framework that was used to assess variations between governance arrangements in three Northern European countries. The framework combines both qualitative and quantitative elements. A triangulation of interviews, documents and observation was used to construct the core data. The comparison and evaluation of different governance approaches provide insight into what elements of governance arrangements are influential in the delivery of homelessness services and how societal results can be improved in general.
