It is generally assumed that street children are homeless victims. It is also generally assumed that the home is tightly related to the private sphere. In this thesis I illustrate that street-working children in Cusco, Peru, are not homeless and not victims and that home is not confined to the private domain. I do this by analyzing how street-working children make home in both the public and the private spaces and by focusing on the role their actors and places of socialization play in this process.
