Summary Educators interested in social change have been using an analysis of privilege in their gender and anti-racist work for some time. Through working with adult Australians in a community education programme on asylum seekers, the applicability of an analysis of privilege to the exclusionary discourses concerning asylum seekers and refugees became clear. This paper argues that possessing citizenship of a safe, stable and materially comfortable country (globally privileged citizenship) provides similar unearned assets as does Whiteness, maleness and other characteristics of dominant groups. Through an analysis of citizenship we reverse the gaze that sees refugees and asylum seekers as the problem and place it on those of us who occupy the privileged position. Alternative approaches to exclusionary discourses of citizenship, asylum seekers and refugees are canvassed.
