Abstract
This article uses critical discourse to show that a series of advertisements by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees are premised on a discourse of sameness that constructs difference negatively. This article moves from deconstructing these advertisements to possibilities for reconstruction that show difference as a positive and productive resource.
