Civil society in Austria today

How is civil society doing in Austria these days? Have the conditions for civil society changed in the last years? This question was asked by the advocacy group of non-profit organizations IGO during their “update” of the CIVIL SOCIETY INDEX, which examined the framework conditions of civil society five years after the publication of a first study. The results were presented to the public in spring 2019 and sparked keen interest. The short answer: Life for associations has become more diverse and much more challenging, the attitude of politics continues to play a decisive role and volunteering is still an integral part of our society no-one would like to miss.
