There are more people displaced that at any time since the Second World War. State fragility, conflict, and climate change create a growing refugee challenge. Old institutions are no longer fit for purpose, and a rethink is urgently needed. This lecture reimagines an approach that can offer sustainable assistance at scale based on recognising the complementary role of states, markets, and society - including an important role for business and entrepreneurship.
Alexander Betts is Professor of Forced Migration and International Affairs, and Director of the Refugee Studies Centre. He is a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, a TED speaker, and co-author of the forthcoming Refuge: Transforming a Broken Refugee System (with Paul Collier, Penguin and Oxford Univerity Press).
