Summary: Austria has achieved great things in 2015, says Michael Landau, Chairman of Caritas, calling for confidence instead of angst. Temporary asylum (e.g. for three years) will cause immense challenges and difficulties in integration, affecting education, work, even housing. Who will invest in a person knowing that he or she will leave soon? Also refugees are people with qualifications who want to take and play a part in society. Solidarity and love for our neighbours is a high calling. Many volunteers are needed to make it happen.
