Abstract This article examines the complexities associated with educating a mobile and politically marginalised population, refugee students, in the state of Queensland, Australia. concerned with social reproduction and citizenship formation with a focus on spatially fixed populations. While education authorities in much of the developed world now acknowledge the need to prepare students for a more interconnected world of work and opportunity, they have largely failed to provide systemic support for one category of children on the move – refugees. This article begins migration and its links with ‘globalisation’. It then present the authors’ research findings about the educational challenges confronting individual refugee youth and schools in Queensland. This is followed with a summary of good practice in refugee education. The article concludes with a discussion of how nation-states might play a more active role in facilitating transitions to citizenship for refugee youth.
