About this book

This book explores the links between education policy and occurrences of civil disorder and domestic terrorism in England and France. Since 2001, both England and France have experienced outbreaks of rioting in which young people of immigrant origin have been implicated: both have also been the targets of domestic terror attacks perpetrated by their own citizens. Both countries have had similar experiences of immigration since the end of the Second World War, but they are considered to have taken divergent approaches to immigrant integration and education. While Britain has tended towards a multicultural race relations approach, France veers towards a Republican assimilationist approach. Through the analysis of policy discourse and documents, the authors seek to establish whether these distinct approaches to immigrant integration and education policy have been maintained or whether they are converging. This book will appeal to students and scholars of education policy as well as immigration and integration in both France and England.

Reviews

“James and Janmaat offer a thorough and well considered analysis of English and French education policy changes in response to the War on Terror. The book highlights the double-speak of assimilation, integration and national values as means to erase difference whilst simultaneously constructing the aberrant enemy ‘Other’ within.” (Vini Lander, Professor of Race and Education and Director of the Centre for Race, Education and Decoloniality, Leeds Beckett University, UK)

“England and France have different traditions concerning the integration of immigrants in society. This book offers a thoughtful analysis of whether these traditions have shaped the educational response of the two countries to domestic terrorism and radicalisation. Are these countries held hostage by their traditions, respectively, of laissez-faire liberalism and republicanism, or do they develop similar policy responses in view of the similar challenges they face? The book is a must read for anyone interested in the dynamics of distinct national approaches to immigrant incorporation.” (Nathalie Mons, Professor of Sociology, Université de Cergy-Pontoise, France)
