Abstract The notion of globalisation has attracted much attention since its arrival as a master concept in the social science disciplines in the 1990s. Despite the flurry of commentary, much work remains to be done. One of the consequences of the emphasis on the newness and uniqueness of globalisation is a tendency to view established disciplines and intellectual traditions as ‘old fashioned’ or ‘outdated’ (Robinson, 2003, Eriksen, 2003). This, we suggest, is a problematic view. We use the case of refugees to argue that talk about a borderless world and global connectivity is misleading as ‘old’ ontologies of space, time and identity are still at work.
