Habibi&Hawara

Austria took in around 90,000 asylum seekers last year, the second-highest number in the EU on a per capita basis. The government has since introduced a cap on the number of people crossing its borders but the question remains: how to best help the new arrivals integrate? I visit the team behind Habibi&Hawara, a restaurant in central Vienna that makes a point of hiring displaced persons.
