“Youth employment, training and protection against homelessness must not be the victims of austerity measures”, Diakonie Austria argues in a press release published on the 13th of January.
The Interior Minister has announced a security campaign after the terrorist attacks of Paris. “Although we approve this security offensive, we also advocate a massive prevention and integration offensive “, says director Michael Chalupka. Investment in the integration of refugees must be a priority. “Hundreds more apartments are needed for refugees after they’ve obtained their asylum status. As a consequence, more and more of them are threatened by homelessness”, the director emphasised.
