The debate surrounding refugees has received constant pick up from both media and politicians over the last couple of months. Given the current need for such a debate in our society, the following report will focus on unaccompanied minor refugees in particular and look at the existing legal framework, its application in everyday life and the theoretical debate around refugees in order to provide suggestions on where specifically these areas can be improved. This will include topics such as housing, education, health, administration and Austria/Europe in general. A particular focus will lie on the individual needs of UMRs with the theoretical foundation being based on Maslows hierarchy of needs, which will be used to critically analyse the different areas mentioned above. The hypotheses resulting from this process will then be analysed and evaluated by conducting interviews with UMRs, ex-UMRs and experts on this topic. Based on these findings, a project has been drawn up that could help satisfy the currently unfulfilled needs of UMRs.
