In an effort to highlight the successful integration of migrants with Muslim backgrounds, Women without Borders (WwB) conducted two studies between 2007 and 2009 that ran in parallel across nine schools and four provinces in Austria. The project focused on the daily lives of students with and on students without migrant Muslim backgrounds. The studies captured students’ interactions with parents and teachers, and, in turn, recorded parents’ and teachers’ perceptions of one another. Viewing the successful integration of migrants as vital to advancing the fabric of Austrian democracy, WwB aimed to foster intercultural dialogue and deepen mutual understanding through its ‘Learning to Live Together’ studies. This article provides an overview of both studies and disusses their key findings.
