«Проблемные окраины» и их обитатели: парижские предместья между «бунтом окраин» и «Шарли эбдо»

Within the past three decades, the issue of “social neighborhoods”, or banlieues, in France went hand in hand with problems of youth from migrant families. During the 1980s, France began speaking about the generation of youth that came from mi- grant families and became the new dwellers of social neighborhoods in the suburbs which had been built since the early 1960s for the poor. In the following years, the state made attempts to address the most critical issues of the suburbs, such as unem- ployment, crime, and violence, but they did not yield the desired result. The article discusses France’s policies toward the banlieues and examines the social situation in those areas during the last decade.
