The same report ranks Austria at nr 35, out of 38 countries. The difference in policy orientation is interesting since the countries have seen similar migration patterns since the end of world war II and share many other similarities.
By examining how political decisions taken over the course of five decades has led to a institutionalized view of citizenship in both countries, I conclude that this has had a large impact on both including and excluding policy adaptations in recent years (Less)
