The Influence of Identification with Terrorism on the Integration Process: The Case of French gendarmes with a Migrant Origin dans G.M. Ruggiero et al. (Eds.), Perspectives on Immigration and Terrorism, NATO Science for Peace and Security Series, Human and Societal Dynamics, vol. 78, 2011, pp.29-35
This contribution focuses on the findings of a two-year qualitative empirical fieldwork carried out on the French Gendarmerie. It was possible to explore the motivation of the young descendants of immigrants to enter the French military police, the career path they envisage within this institution, the advantages or obstacles their perceived differences present for their engagement, and the racial discrimination some of them endure within a Republican institution based on equal treatment principle.
