INTRODUCTION

This report summarises the findings of four focus group discussions conducted with refugees and asylum seekers in Vienna, predominantly from Afghanistan and Syria. Two discussions were held with male participants and two with female participants, totalling 21 people, with ages ranging from 19 to 66. This is the second in a series of data collection rounds looking at refugee perceptions of humanitarian assistance in Austria under the Mixed Migration Platform (MMP). The discussion topics were designed by Ground Truth Solutions based on the findings of perceptual quantitative surveys conducted in March 2017. The aim is to delve deeper into the issues that surfaced in the survey. More background and information on the methodology can be found at the end of this report.
