Dimensions de la laïcité dans la France d’aujourd’hui

Abstract : The analysis of what laicity currently represents in the opinions and the attitudes of the French people reveals the existence of two dimensions of laicity : one republican, which becomes less frequent among the young people, the other separatist. Strongest adhesion to laicity considered under its two facets, republican and separatist, remains related on irreligion and the left wing, but much of Catholics, and some right-oriented people are republican laics. What differentiates right-oriented laics from left-oriented laics is the significance of certain attitudes, that they seem to have in common. Thus the rejection of the Islamic headscarf goes with tolerance for the left-oriented and goes with hostility towards immigrants for the right-oriented.
