Immigration to France: The Challenge of Immigrant Integration

(p.79) 6 France
Immigration Worldwide

Ines Michalowski

Oxford University Press

In France, the assimilation of migrants has been a dogma for many years and there has been a strong belief that assimilation would work. Over the past years, however, a lot of criticism, especially with regard to the situation of the children and grandchildren of former immigrants, has been voiced. The present contribution provides a systematic overview of the different groups that have migrated to France, their channels of immigration, their legal status, and their social integration based on a set of selected indicators. The major policy responses of France as a host country in the field of migration and integration and the policies with regard to the accommodation of religious minorities are summarized as are the public debates related to these issues.

Keywords:   models of integration, republicanism, cost and benefits of immigration, integration policies, indicators, minorities
