This chapter concentrates on one interview-based case study involving a young homeless man. In particular, it discusses the specific interactions between interviewer and interviewee, exemplifying policy conclusions from the type of relationship that was established. These interactions reveal the need to talk about ‘more intimate secrets’ that the subject could not present explicitly, raising questions about the ‘need’ for a facilitative and supportive context in which this could happen.

Keywords:   interview-based case study, homeless man, interviewer, interviewee, interactions, policy conclusions
