North African Diaspora in France and Colonial Legacies

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    One cannot draw a general image of the descendants of North African immigrants in France, especially in terms of their political beliefs, opinions, and social status, as that would be to homogenise the itineraries of individuals and their different responses to their social and economic situations. However, these people share a certain common history, such as that of their parents' migration to France, their ancestors' colonial and anti-colonial history and the implications of that legacy for their lives in France, their working-class background in the banlieues at the periphery of French society, and their being at the receiving end of ethnic stigmatisation.
