The Behaviours and Attitudes of Muslim French Citizens

  • Manlio CinalliEmail author
Part of the Palgrave Politics of Identity and Citizenship Series book series ( CAL)


This chapter will analyse the integration of MFCs by drawing on individual survey data. To begin with, I shall make use of specific data about the behaviour and attitudes of MFCs, which reflect their access to the French civitas (in terms of their engagement with non-Muslims, and of their support for the republican norms of laïcité and secularisation).
