Research project commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection (BMASK). This research project is currently implemented by the Institute for the Sociology of Law and Criminology (Lead), queraum and BIM. For the first time in Austria this empirical study strives to gather representative data on the diverse experiences of abuse and violence of persons with disabilities.

In 2016, the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights won the tender for a framework contract with the Austrian Development Agency (ADA). Its goals are to further root and develop Human Rights, Democracy and Good Governance, as well as Preventing Conflict and Securing Peace within the work of the Austrian Development Agency and the Austrian Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs.
In recent years more knowledge has been gained on THB for the purpose of labour exploitation. More and more cases have come to the fore in many economic sectors, including agriculture, construction, garments, care and cleaning work. Nevertheless, as for instance shown in the project COMP.ACT, access to effective remedies is often out of reach for trafficked persons.
In 2010 the Guidelines of the Council of Europe on Child Friendly Justice have been adopted, supported by the European Commission.
The EU-funded project, “Children’s Rights Behind Bars - Human rights of children deprived of liberty: improving monitoring mechanisms” was created with the aim of improving international juvenile justice standards to protect the needs of incarcerated children.
It was concluded with a “Practical Guide: monitoring places where children are deprived of their liberty.” The guide is available for free for download, and is the first of its kind in Europe. The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute contributed to its drafting over the last two years as one of the partners in the project.
