Identities, Discourses and Experiences

Young people of North African Origin in France

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book examines academic and public discourses about young people of North African origin in France and reveals a clear disjuncture between the preoccupations and parameters of these debates and the lived experiences of the majority of people concerned. This book rebalances and nuances the debates about post-migrant North-African youth by drawing on extensive empirical research carried out in those suburbs of north-east Paris affected by recent violence. It studies the construction of identity amongst this invisible majority and by adopting an ethnographic approach, the disjuncture between the sometimes inflammatory discourses about young people of North African origin and their own lives is addressed. This book will be of interest to students and researchers working in Francophone Cultural Studies, Sociology, Anthropology and European Studies.
