Bruno Kreisky Foundation

for Human Rights

Michael Landau (Austria)

Msgr. DDr. Michael Landau, who was ordained to the priesthood in 1992, as head of Caritas Vienna from 1995 and since 2013 as president of Caritas Austria, has worked sustainably and with great commitment always - also publicly acting against the cultural and political zeitgeist - for the unrestricted maintenance and enforcement of human rights in Austria and in the world. In the spirit of the Foundation's statutes, President Landau has not only continued the tradition of his predecessors in Caritas through humanitarian or charitable aid in an extraordinary dimension, but has expanded it further.
