Displaced Persons from Ukraine in Austria- Risk Factors in the Area of Housing

Also available in:

In January 2023, IOM Austria, in cooperation with the Austrian Federal Ministry of the Interior and the Austrian Integration Fund, conducted an online survey among 552 displaced persons from Ukraine residing in Austria. The aim was to collect data on their living and housing situation and identify potential risks of experiencing violence, exploitation or abuse.

The data collected was analysed using the IOM Determinants of Migrant Vulnerability Model to arrive at a broad understanding of risk factors that possibly contribute to migrants’ vulnerability. The model looks at these risk factors, vis-à-vis protective factors (those that increase resilience), and how they interact. The survey collected data on factors at different levels: individual, household or family, and community.
