“Immigrant Spatial Desegregation Trends and Inequality Along Ethnoracial Lines in France”
*Co-Sponsored with The Program on International Migration
Abstract: This article describes patterns of ethnoracial and socioeconomic neighborhood attainment among North African, sub-Saharan African and European immigrants in France. We use the French Trajectories and Origins Survey, containing rare assimilation variables (length of stay, immigrant generation, parental length of stay, mixed ascendance, socioeconomic status). Findings highlight the weak potency of these variables in accounting for spatial trajectories compared to the predominance of ethnoracial origin. Simultaneous equations models are used to show how ethnoracial and socioeconomic desegregation overlap, delineating distinct patterns of neighborhood attainment across immigrant groups, with intense spatial disadvantage among North Africans and sub- Saharan Africans. The conclusion discusses the implications of these findings for understanding the ethnoracial dimension of socio-spatial stratification in France.
