Learning Objectives

More than questions of a general nature, the attack on the offices of the satirical weekly journal Charlie Hebdo, the terrorist attacks of November 13, 2015, the massacre in Nice on July 14, 2016, have raised questions specifically regarding the structures that dominate French society and its integration model.  Beginning with the events of January 7 2014, this course will analyse intercultural relations within French society and specifically in relation to the pact of laity, a legal principle that regulates public services and relationships between citizens, but also causes frequent and serious ideological conflict.

Immigration and Islam
