According to a poll, 72 % of Austrians expect other EU members to defend them in case of a military attack, but only 14 % say that Austria should support other EU members with armed troops. This attitude is also reflected in statements from government officials and could lead to Austria’s isolation. Time for an honest discussion about the tension between neutrality and solidarity and the consequences for Austrian security policy.
