This chapter draws on the important body of research into the historical and contemporary presence of Muslims in Australia and New Zealand. We explore historical and contemporary contact between Muslims and non-Muslims in both countries, including the contemporary tensions associated with their presence in Australia and New Zealand. Additionally, this chapter examines how mainstream news media and politicians have responded to the challenges presented by these tensions and their associated conflicts. This chapter suggests ways that researchers might focus on some of these challenges, both political and social, to inform research directions for the future.
