The Austrian government recently agreed on measures that involve direct interference with individuals’ rights to liberty. Amongst others, so called “Gefährder” (individuals considered to be a threat to public safety) and rejected asylum seekers are affected.
In this current BIM Position, we examine these measures from a human rights perspective, exploring the link between the rule of law principle and considerations of public security.
Currently the BIM Position No. 9 is only available in German.
