Indians in France : an increasingly diverse population
Title: Indians in France : an increasingly diverse population
Author: WILLIAMS, Leonard
Series/Number: Migration Policy Centre; CARIM-India Research Report; 2013/30
This country report traces the history of migration from India to France and uses a wide variety of sources to build a general picture of the socio-economic and demographic profile of the Indian population in France, as well as an illustration of their treatment in the French media, the implications of France’s legal framework for them and a presentation of the religious and cultural associations established, and the level of socio-cultural integration that these Indians have achieved. Being a relatively small migrant community in France, this population has received relatively little academic attention, least of all for the most recent wave of migrants; high skilled workers and students. In order to add to our knowledge about Indians in France this report concludes with the results of a survey carried out in July 2013 with sixty-one respondents and explores their motivations as well as their experiences of migration to France.
