Research

We research and analyse qualitative and quantitative data and process them according to the needs and wishes of our sponsors and target groups. Methodological variety and the respect for different perspectives are a given. We design participative and inclusive research processes and focus on the applicability of our research results.

The "Inclusive Spaces 2.0: My School and My Block!" project is about researching social spaces of New Middle Schools and communities in the 22nd district of Vienna. Students and professional researchers will investigate these questions jointly, using innovative methods that connect to the lifestyles of young people.

This is the first representative study of disabled persons' experiences of violence in Austria. The project coordination lies with the Institut für Rechts- und Kriminalsoziologie. The research results will contribute to violence prevention and the support of persons affected by violence. They will comprise examples of good-practice and they will support institutions that have to deal with violence issues.

The MOMA project investigates the little-explored field of police detention centers and thus responds to a gap in security research. queraum is responsible for developing a competency profile that systematises the skills, skills and knowledge required by employees in PAZ to ensure the mental and physical health of the detainees.

The project "Police and the Public: Teaching – Intensification – Security" was commissioned by The Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) and the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) and aims at the development of customized solution- and competence strategies for security related problems at seven different places in Austria. queraum.

The project team – consisting of researchers and experts with and without disabilities – will find out if women with disabilities who have experienced violence have equal access to support services. Furthermore the cooperation and communication between women's counselling services, women's shelters and service providers for persons with disabilities will be improved.

The project was initiated by the Vienna MA18 (Urban development and urban planning). It was dedicated to find out how urban planning can cope with perceptions of insecurity in urban space. Based on new and existing data, recommendations to optimize urban planning processes were be developed. The project also aimed at improving the interdisciplinary exchange between various relevant fields (security research, community work, urban development...).

The aim of this participative research project is to find out about the effects of the personal assistance and support provided by LOK – from the view of both clients and staff of LOK.

Due to the demographic change and the aging of society, the police and other security actors are confronted with new challenges in public space within the next years. On the basis of the collected data, the SI:ALT project team will develop products for a valuable contribution to the prevention and communication activities and the behaviour of police officers towards old and very old people.

Social integration/inclusion remains one of the main challenges in schools. "Inclusive Spaces" tries to tackle this problem. The project tries to generate knowledge that contributes to foster social cohesion and "successful inclusion" in schools. Social space theory provides the framework for the research.

The project TOPOS is promoted within the Security Research Funding KIRAS by the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology. This projects aims at the development of an app for the city of Wels (Upper Austria), which records on the spot the subjectively perceived feeling of (in)-security of the users in public areas.

The study "Participative Safety Research within Academic Education and Training in Austria" was commissioned by the Austrian Association for Research Funding (FFG) and the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) and combines empirical findings concerning subjective safety with the implementation of these outputs into the police training.

queraum was commissioned by the Austrian Public Employment Service (AMS) to conduct an empirical study which provides the data and knowledge base for the design of future employment information material catering to the needs of people with intellectual disabilities. A reference group of twelve self-advocates with intellectual disabilities accompanied and advised all main research phases such as planning, fieldwork and the analysis of the results. The study (in German) can be obtained through the AMS Research Network.
