Huge media response to our project "Violence against persons with disabilities"

 

The study "Violence against persons with disabilities" shows that disabled persons are much more likely to be victims of psychological, physical or sexual violence than non-disabled persons in Austria. The presentation of the study results lead to a huge media response – an important signal for the issue of equal rights of people with disabilities. The project was commissioned by the Austrian Social Ministry. The scientific lead was with the Institut für Rechts- und Kriminalsoziologie in Vienna.
