Abstract This paper covers the following areas: first, the authors reflect on the challenges presented by competing priorities of the broader social justice agenda on their experiences of doing research on refugees and education. Second, they discuss the capacity of institutions like schools, which have traditionally assumed a nation-building role, to welcome and work with refugee and asylum seeker 'strangers'. Third, they explore globalisation (and its neoliberal forms) as a conceptual framework for understanding current movements of people as refugees and asylum seekers, and their reception by developed countries such as Australia
