Contents: The structure of available shelter and housing for the homeless in Sweden resembles a staircase. The higher an individual climbs, the more privacy and freedom he/she is awarded and the more 'normal' that individual's housing becomes, a regular rental flat typifying the ultimate goal. Despite growing evidence that this approach to housing, training and reintegrating the homeless fails to reduce homelessness, it is in fact expanding. This paradox is the focus of this article. The first section outlines the origin, elements and vision of the 'staircase of transition' and its development. The following two sections provide brief summaries on research carried out on the outcome of the model in terms of homeless numbers, and on the model's internal tensions and dynamics. Finally, common responses to criticism of the staircase model are discussed and reasons for its survival provided.
