L'État et les immigrés : France, Allemagne, Grande-Bretagne et États-Unis

Abstract : The State and the Immigrants : France, Germany, Great-Britain and the United States. - This article compares the policies adopted by three European countries (France, Germany and Great-Britain) and the United States towards immigration. It analyses the impact of these policies on the acculturation of immigrants and on their integration into the larger society. Nation states have different policies of education, housing, political participation and especially of juridiction concerning associational life and citizenship. Their political traditions are different too. The immigrants are also not the same, neither in their cultural background, nor in their historical relationship to the host society. History explains for a large extent the immigration policy of these countries. Even if the wishes of governments might differ, the question is whether the actual social realities in each country are not much more similar to each other than the governments might wish. Does the American example provide insights into the future of foreign populations in Europe. Does the present situation lead to a status of ethnic minority on the American model, or does it constitute an intermediary stage before the " melting pot ".
