Austria: “If housing was a human right, I wouldn’t live like this” – Barriers to accessing homeless assistance services in Austria

This research project forms part of a comprehensive project of Amnesty International Austria focussing on poverty and human rights. This initial research briefing examines how the right to housing is being respected, protected and implemented, specifically in the case of people experiencing homelessness in Austria; in particular, specific concerns around prevention of homelessness and availability and accessibility of emergency housing for individuals in particular situations of precarity or at risk of homelessness and enhanced obstacles some need to overcome when trying to access emergency housing or associated support, depending on intersecting aspects of their identity.
