On February 9th, the Spring 2016 NYU Urban Seminar Series, co-hosted by the NYU Furman Center and Marron Institute, welcomed Julie Moschion, Senior Research Fellow from the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research at Melbourne University.
Moschion presented research on parental separation and homelessness based on her paper, "Do Childhood Experiences of Parental Separation Lead to Homelessness?" She finds that the separation of a child's parents does, in fact, substantionally affect the likelihood of him becoming homeless and that this effect is more pronounced when the split occurs early in childhood development (before 12 years of age).
The NYU Urban Seminar series is co-hosted by the NYU Furman Center and the Marron Institute. The speaker series is focused on research with implications for urban policy, and features a variety of researchers from across the U.S. discussing their work. The NYU Urban Seminar is open to the public; registration is required.
