Until the mid‐1980s, the share of migrants in Austria was relatively low in international comparison. With the fall of the Iron Curtain and the opportunities which it opened for East‐West flows, migration to Austria increased rapidly. This chapter presents an overview of the key labour market outcomes of immigrants in Austria in international comparison, and their evolution over time. It analyses the framework for integration and provides a detailed picture of immigrants and their children in the labour market. It analyses the main integration policy instruments, the skills and qualifications of immigrants and their use in the labour market, and reviews the school‐to‐work transition of the children of immigrants as well as the evidence regarding discrimination.
