Abstract

Therefore, I intend to examine the practices of the French police force and the politics within, as well as the attitude among the French people directed towards minorities in their daily life. Not least how the immigration politics affect today’s immigrants. To illustrate these problems more extensively I have also brought up a few cases that deal with problems similar to those in Clichy-sous-Bois. The participation of French journalists and their representation of ethnic minorities in the newspapers are also important. During the riots, French newspapers presented a strong viewpoint regarding young people living in the suburbs, which worsened the case. However, the suburbs in France are becoming an increasingly hot zone for social vulnerability and discontent. In Clichy-sous-Bois, this was displayed through violent riots. (Less)
