Abstract :

The violence which took place on October and November 2005 in France caught the attention of people all around the world. Is this violence caused by the failure of the French integration model, in all its social aspects: institutional or republican, cultural or national, intellectual or politic? According to Mr. Wieviorka, to analyse them, we have to study them using 3 different scales: the long term (the 30 latest years); the short time (the 4 or 5 latest years) and the circumstances (marked by the death of 2 teenagers, and some public reaction towards those events).
