“The Refugees Welcome Index exposes the shameful way governments have played short term politics with the lives of people fleeing war and repression. Governments must heed these results, which clearly show the vast majority of people ready and willing to make refugees welcome in their country,” Amnesty International Secretary General Salil Shetty said in a statement, criticizing some politicians’ “xenophobic” rhetoric.

It looks that the less population has direct experience with current, we have to stress word “CURREENT” refugee crisis the more welcoming people are.

An Amnesty International survey conducted in 27 countries found 80 per cent of respondents would welcome refugees with open harts.
Canada ranks in top five for welcoming refugees: survey. China is the most welcoming nation, scoring 85 on the organization’s Refugees Welcome Index, followed by Germany with 84, and the United Kingdom coming in third with 83. Seven in 10 Australians think the government should do more to help refugees. “People are ready to make refugees welcome,” said Shalil Shetty, Amnesty International’s secretary general.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has been the main champion for refugees in Europe, has been forced to take a hard stance, due the mounting pressure from several European officials who have cited security and economic burdens.

It looks that the less population has direct experience with current, we have to stress word “CURREENT”, refugee crisis the more welcoming people are.
