Abstract

- Safe movement in the city is a constant challenge for street children and youth as they conduct their lives and earn their livelihoods in public spaces.
- Developing awareness of where and when they can move safely at different times of day and night, street children and youth adjust their movement and routines to protect themselves from violence, arrest and humiliation.
- Experiences of safe movement are complex, as the nature of locations and risk vary depending on the time of day, the presence or absence of the police and security forces and other external events.
