The Problem of Minorities in Austria. Legislation, enforcement, and Radical groups.

Dr. Rheindorf is a famous researcher in the field of Xenophobia and Radicalism in modern Austria. You can find here his report in the framework of the Program of the European Center for Democracy for the Study of Xenophiobia and Radicalism in Europe. Since the so-called “refugee crisis” of 2015/2016, Austria has been struggling with a notable increase of generally xenophobic, racist or anti-Muslim sentiments as well as actions. Most of these fall clearly under the extreme-right rubric and many are also categorized as violations of the National Socialism Prohibition Act. However, while there was a turning point in public and political opinion regarding refugees/immigration in late 2015, it is important to realize that this pattern is not a radical break but an intensification or perhaps even resurgence of anti-immigrant attitudes that have a long history in Austria.
