Children’s Rights Behind Bars: National Report Austria

In the framework of the project "Children’s Rights Behind Bars", a series of national reports were written in fifteen European countries on the existence and the functioning of monitoring and complaints mechanisms for juveniles in detention.

At the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights, Helmut Sax (team: children's rights, women's rights and human trafficking), Tamara Majnek and Tiphanie Crittin (team: Human Dignity and Public Security) carried out the research and wrote the report on the situation in Austria.

All national reports on the implementation of juvenile detention facilities' monitoring and complaint mechanisms may be found here.

The national report about Austria may be found in the Appendix.
