What is the purpose of this site?
The Austrian Constitution is back on the public agenda. Often it will be discussed in the context of fundamental values that should be endorsed and followed by anyone living in Austria. Apart from that there is still little talk on what the constitution is and what it contains. Such discussions are mostly left to experts. This should change: The constitution is our common basis as people who live in the Republic of Austria. We are convinced, that we should start to talk about the constitution. And we want that anyone can join the debate. Our texts and materials shall support and enable such discussions.
