In this paper, the A. first provides an overview of the rise of homelessness since the late 1980s. Then, he examines changing public and political attitudes towards homelessness in post-socialist Hungary and place the growing trend towards penalization in the larger context of an emerging criminal paradigm. After analyzing the recent authoritarian turn, he argues that the radical intensifi-cation of criminalization is a strategy not only to secure political dominance, but also to obscure the failure of the state to address the social, political and economic contradictions that became salient at the time of the regime change.
