Abstract

When major crises emerge, cross-national helping on the part of ordinary citizens can go a long way towards alleviating suffering – both at the level of supporting government aid policies and through offering individual charitable assistance. But can we predict who is more likely to help? Nihan Albayrak has focused on the Syrian refugee crisis and found that religious identity is a stronger predictor of offering help than national identity. She goes on to suggest that the charity sector should keep this in mind to maximise the success of their campaigns.
