Main Thematic Focus
Integration & inclusion
The study is on the perceptions of the general population on integration. Almost all respondents believe that integration is obeying Austrian rules and laws and achieving good German skills. The respondents believe that the following aspects are indicators for bad integration: putting the Islam over the rule of law (90%), no adaption on the Austrian habits (85%), denying gender equality (85%), and bad German skills (81%). Half of respondents worry about the spreading of radical Islam (49%) but only 29% perceive that religious believe is a barrier for integration. 52% believe that migrants only are responsible for integration.
