A l'UM la science [S02-ep19] : Immigration

This week in A l'UM la science, a large-format interview with Eric Savarese, researcher at the CEPEL political science laboratory, who presents his latest book, Dix questions sur l'immigration.

Unless you live in a cave, you've all more or less been following the political news of the last few weeks, with its backdrop of pensions, demonstrations and the 49.3 brandished in front of an assembly more divided than ever. Leaving the pension reform aside, let's ask ourselves how this parliament will emerge from this crisis after a motion of censure was rejected by just 9 votes. How will the National Assembly continue to function as Emmanuel Macron's mandate barely and painfully completes its first year? This is an important question, as the weeks and months ahead promise to be equally divisive, starting with the new bill on immigration, integration and asylum, presented to the Council of Ministers on February 1 and due to be debated in the Assembly very shortly. Yet another immigration law, you may say, and rightly so. From the Pasqua law of 1986 to the Collomb law of 2018, some twenty laws have been passed in just over 30 years. Every government since then, without exception, has enacted legislation on immigration, asylum or nationality, or even on several of these subjects at the same time. On the eve of another ideologically-charged debate, over the next 30 minutes we're going to take a look at the main concepts of immigration, and examine them in the current context. Our guest is Eric Savarese, a political science researcher at the Centre d'études politiques et sociales (CEPEL). He recently published a book entitled "Dix questions sur l'immigration" (Ten questions about immigration), published by Deboeck in January.
