Analyzing social and ecological sustainability in Lower Austria’s residential sector in its relationship to integration of migrants is this project’s innovative aim. Comprehensive sustainability demands for the diligent calibration of both social and ecological requirements which can only be met when screened jointly. Within this project, social area analysis will be conducted in two selected residential areas of Lower Austria. This analysis will include insights into migrants’ transnational social environment. Applying the tool of social area analysis in this context will demonstrate how it can be harnessed to establish a sound analytical basis for concise interventions. Findings and insights gained pave the way for recommendations on how to sustainably implement migrants’ integration in Lower Austria’s residential sector.
