The core values of the Department for Refugee and Migration Services are formulated in the mission statement of the Zentrum ÜBERLEBEN. In our work we feel a special obligation to foster the right to life and physical integrity as well as the health of those impaired. In our view, access to medical and psychotherapeutic care, to education, job training and vocation are fundamental elements for the self-determination of the individual. We believe that overcoming victimization and social marginalization on an individual and societal level are central steps in the process of social integration of migrants as a disadvantaged group of the population. Our prime objectives include raising intercultural awareness in institutions, as well as promoting prevention of violence and scientific research development within the field of flight and migration.
