This chapter details the current situations in relation to the extent, nature and characteristics of women rough sleepers in each of the countries in the study. It will discuss the context of the problem of women rough sleepers in each country with regard to how much is currently known about women who sleep rough, previous research that has been carried out and also the current situation in each country with regard to legislation, policy and practice. It includes discussion of the relevant European literature on the subject of homelessness, the different social contexts of the organisations and women rough sleepers themselves who took part in the study and will highlight salient similarities and differences in responses from those interviewed and will contextualise this against the background of the current social, political and cultural climates within each country in the study. It includes literature reviews that were carried out by each partner country at the start of the project.
