The project is meant to prepare the ground for the analysis of the refugee crisis in Austria and the Czech Republic by looking at two sets of reaction dimensions: First, claims and frames proposed within the public sphere by political and societal actors and the media; and second, practices undertaken by civil society and non-profit organizations. This will be realized by 1) organizing two workshops of project participants in Brno and Vienna respectively, 2) organizing a public lecture on the topic, and 3) preparation of a publication to a peer-reviewed journal.
