  • China, Germany, UK, Canada  top index measuring public acceptance of refugees; Russia bottom
  • Globally, 1 in 10 would let refugees stay in their home, 3 in 10 in their neighbourhood
  • Call on World Humanitarian Summit to back “Global Compact” for helping refugees


    The vast majority of people (80%) would welcome refugees with open arms, with many even prepared to take them into their own homes, according to a global survey commissioned by Amnesty International.

The new Refugees Welcome Index, based on a global survey of more than 27,000 people carried out by the internationally renowned strategy consultancy GlobeScan, ranks 27 countries across all continents based on people’s willingness to let refugees live in their countries, towns, neighbourhoods and homes.

The survey shows people say they are willing to go to astonishing lengths to make refugees welcome. It also shows how anti-refugee political rhetoric is out of kilter with public opinion.
