On Friday, the RSC Director, Alexander Betts, gave a talk on the refugee crisis in a packed closing session of TED 2016 in Vancouver. CBC News reports that Professor Betts received a standing ovation for his talk “in which he outlined a four-point plan to overhaul a decades-old approach to international migration.” Betts called “a new vision”, a recognition that refugees are “human beings with skills, talents, aspirations, with the ability to make contributions if we let them.”

The TED talk will be available later in the week - watch this space for details!
