One in every 122 human beings on the planet is a refugee. That's well over 50 million people worldwide. And the figures are rising daily - a tragic trend unlikely to stop in our lifetimes. Around 80 percent of refugees are being hosted by developing countries with rising anti-refugee sentiment in many industrialised nations. This worldwide refugee crisis is widely recognized as one of the defining challenges of this century and appropriate responses are urgently needed. Join our next Central Conversation as Krish Kandiah helps us discover how hospitality both personal and national is the means by which not only the world can be changed but our lives as well.
