Abstract Home is an incommensurable place, a place of absolute safety and security, that cannot be replicated. For immigrants, refugees, and seekers of asylum, the difficulties of locating such a space, a place like home, are insurmountable. For the deterritorialized or deracinated subject, there can be no place like ‘home.' In this essay, I rehearse some of the conceptual scenarios offered by Jacques Derrida as he considers what is at stake in the debate concerning hospitality and cosmopolitan rights of abode, within the context of Chinese diaspora and specifically Australia, a place which Ien Ang has compelling written about as an ambivalent scene of hospitality: offering reluctant tolerance and an unhomely home, where the Other can live but cannot belong.
