Lecture by Alexis Spire
Alexis Spire discusses how French immigration policies bear the marks of a colonial past that has often been disguised or camouflaged by the French government.
Alexis Spire is a Research Fellow with the CNRS at the University of Lille 2. He is a sociologist and a specialist of French immigration and asylum policy. His books on this topic include Etrangers à la carte : L’administration de l’immigration en France (1945-1975) (2005) and Accueillir ou reconduire : Enquête sur les guichets de l’immigration (2008).
