Description: 

The Paris region has the largest migrant population in France. Most of these populations come from former French colonies, are often francophone and are well acquainted with French culture. We will study history, sociology, and anthropology to better understand the men and women who live amongst “ethnic French.” We will also analyze different political, historical, and sociological points of view relative to “the problem” of immigration in the last few decades.
