Study Visits

WAVE is happy to assist WAVE Members in organising a study visit to Vienna to learn more about tackling and preventing violence against women in Austria. We can also assist external organisations who would like to get in contact with women’s specialist services, agencies and ministries within Vienna for visiting delegations, wherever possible, or for those who would like to organise a meeting with the WAVE Office to learn more about our work surrounding violence against women on a European level.

Please note that WAVE cannot fund or book any travel arrangements or accommodation of visiting delegations. As some presenters only speak in German, translators need to be organized by the visiting delegation.
