About this book

Immigrant incorporation is a critical challenge for France and other European societies today. Black Africans migrants are racialized and endowed with an immigrant status, which carries low status and is durable into the second generation. This book elucidates the conflict and issues pertinent to social integration.

Reviews

“Focused on sub-Saharan African immigrant women and their families in France, African Immigrant Families in Another France illustrates the structural and cultural markers which characterize these immigrants’ integration experiences. … African Immigrant Families in Another France provides a helpful overview of a population often neglected in studies of migration in Western Europe.” (Jean Beaman, International Migrant Review, 2016)
