Website des Parlaments - Gesetzesentwurf

The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights issued its statement on a draft proposed to amend the Austrian asylum and migration law in specifically sensitive areas. The focus of the analysis lies on the human rights dimension of the proposal. The draft amendments are designed to implement a regime that provides the means for restricting the right to liberty of individuals seeking protection in Austria throughout the entire asylum and return procedure. Substantial questions regarding the conformity with international and European human rights law remain unanswered, while some provisions, such as on coercive detention in return proceedings, would even blatantly contravene EU law. In this light, the BIM declares itself against the adoption of this proposal.

After participating at the annual N-O-W-conference in Vienna, the Ludwig Boltzmann Institut for Human Rights is joining the N-O-W-network.

Based on a private initative, the network advanced to a nonpartisan and internationally enterprise, based in Vienna. Its goal is to aspire to a respectful and appreciative social coexistence. To this end, it links active initiatives and individuals, informs about social changes and supports the assumption of responsibility.

20 successful graduates saw the finalisation of the first Lab for Open Innovation in Science (LOIS) which was initiated by the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft (LBG) in 2015. Amongst the graduates is Julia Planitzer, senior expert specialized in measures against trafficking in human beings at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights.
