    As part of a larger project mapping preventive structures and policies for children, young people and families in 12 European countries, the Making Prevention Work study aims to provide a consistent base for developing preventive policies in Europe. It examines approaches across the EU that demonstrate success with local preventive work. The in-depth case study of Austria presented in this publication is one of three published in the context of the Making Prevention Work study. Making Prevention Work draws on a concept of prevention that is framed in universalist and integrative terms. The concept is universalist in that it addresses all children and young people, even those not seen as being “at-risk.” It is integrative because prevention should be organized from a child’s point of view, not in terms of administrative responsibilities. As such, this concept targets the establishment of prevention chains that link different institutions over the life-course. Making Prevention Work includes summary factsheets of the preventive concepts, structures and practices mapped in 12 EU member states (Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, England (UK), Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Spain and Sweden) as well as three case studies (Austria, France and the Netherlands) featuring data from interviews with experts and implementing actors.
