Migrant health: sturdiness and vulnerability

Michel Guillot (University of Pennsylvania/INED) explains that immigrants’ health in France is, on average, better than natives’ health, at least that of adults. This is due in part to the fact that the emigrant population is not representative of the countries emigrants leave; it is instead a “selected” group, relatively “robust”. However, it is important not to neglect the points of vulnerability specific to immigrant populations.

Patrick Simon about integration

March 21 is International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. In a video of his lecture at Campus Condorcet, Patrick Simon describes the French model of integration and how it has evolved. While France has become a multicultural society, the French integration model remains a subject of debate and conflict. Simon’s lecture draws on the findings of the TeO survey (Trajectoires et Origines) survey, which studied discrimination and perceptions of racism in France.
