Around the world, it found that one person in 10 would be prepared to take refugees into their homes.

“These figures speak for themselves,” said Shalil Shetty, Amnesty International’s secretary general.

“People are ready to make refugees welcome,” he said, but governments’ inhumane response to the refugee crisis is “badly out of touch with the views of their own citizens.”
