“In Vienna, as in every other major European city, immigration and diversity form part of everyday life. For effective social cohesion in an urban society it is paramount that politics, administration and civil society openly embrace this diversity. Immigration and a diverse population contribute significantly to a city’s economic, social and cultural success.
Vienna recognises this challenge with its policies in the areas of diversity and integration, which have become indispensable to openly meeting these urban developments”.
