Second-generation immigrants: Citizenship and transnationalism / Inmigrantes de segunda generación: ciudadanía y transnacionalismo

Catherine Wihtol de Wenden


This article deals with a socio-historical approach of “second-generation
immigrants” in France, a country which has a long story of immigration, but
which has refused this historical past for a long time. Two tools of comprehension
are used: On one hand, intersectionnality of belongings, which puts all elements
of them in competition (Arab, Muslim, French, segregated in poor districts);
work, however, has ceased to be an identity of recognition. On the other, a
transnationality that cuts through the frontiers and the walls by identity and
plural relations. After an historical perspective of the phenomenon “secondgeneration
immigrants” in France, the article examines the various factors of
identification that are competing together.
