In a context where a number of Scottish local authorities report increasing levels of rough sleeping and/or begging, this event provides a forum for stakeholders to reflect on the opportunities, challenges and dilemmas associated with responses containing elements of ‘enforcement’ (e.g. byelaws, ASBOs) and/or ‘interventionism’ (e.g. assertive outreach). Using the interim findings of a major study of welfare conditionality in Scotland and England as a starting point, this event aims to promote an open and constructive debate about the rationale used to justify and/or oppose such measures, what is known about outcomes, and the complex practical and ethical issues associated with their use.
