The theme of the Austrian Presidency

Recent studies concerning public safety have shown that despite a measurable decrease in the occurrence of crime over all, the subjective feeling of safety among the citizens of Austria has declined in recent years. During the Austrian Presidency our main focus will therefore lie on how to strengthen the community and the cooperation with the community to fight crime and organized crime. The Presidency will organize a large-scale international conference in December, which will revolve around this theme and invite national and international experts to present initiatives and projects that enable the improvement of the subjective feeling of safety of our citizens through positive exposure and cooperation with law enforcement.
