FRANCE/IMMIGRATION – How the French Understand Immigrant Integration and Citizenship (Christophe Bertossi, IFRI)

On December 9, 2020 will be celebrated the 115th anniversary of the 1905 law on French secularism (laïcité). On the very same day, a new law project will be presented by the French government, with the objective of further strengthening the “republican values” in order to fight against so-called “Islamist separatism” within French society.
