Viewing refugees as human beings with much to offer is the first step in addressing the refugee crisis.

Refugee advocate Alexander Betts posits that the problem stems from viewing migrants as a burden rather than as a rich resource. He proposes four changes that could upend this perception. getAbstract recommends Betts’s well-reasoned talk to European policy makers, people on the front lines of the crisis and those following it in the headlines.
