Kurdish Community in Austria

The Kurdistan Regional Government Representation in Austria plays a crucial role for the Kurdish community in Austria. On the one hand the KRG Austria is the primary contact-and information point for Kurds living in Austria, while on the other hand the representation has continuously organized events bringing together the Kurdish Community. In the past five years the KRG Representation in Austria organized and supported annual Newroz receptions, bringing together Kurds, foreign diplomats in Austria as well as Austrians in order to celebrate the Kurdish new year together. The humanitarian activities were another field where the Kurdish community was very active together with the KRG Representation in the past years.

Moreover, the KRG Austria supports the Kurdish School in Vienna, the Lalesh Theater, the Institute of Kurdology with the Kurdish library of Prof. Jalil Jalili, as well as the soccer club FC Newroz and many other initiatives that benefit the Kurdish community.
