Within the past few years, Marseille has been upheld in the media as a success story of French immigration policy due its apparent ability to welcome and integrate diverse social groups, notably North African immigrants and their descendants. While it is true that Marseille has largely escaped the social unrest found in other French cities with significant numbers of immigrant residents, the city’s large North African population still faces marginalization and discrimination. This thesis aims to challenge the recent positive journalistic narrative by highlighting the ongoing social issues that North African immigrants still face in the city.
