Sample text

Autonomy and self-sufficiency are the new keywords of this integration. The host society, on the other hand, needs to set some procedures of civic integration to measure and test the levels of integration. Thus, the Netherlands has implemented a Newcomer Integration Law (1998), comprising a twelve-month course in Dutch language, culture, and politics, as well as preparation for employment. The revised 2006 version further requires that migrants pay in full for this course. Joppke (2007) notes that this type of civic integration is becoming increasingly common, and sees in it a shift towards the obligations of migrants rather than their rights.

In the words of Nathan Glazier’s and Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s classic work Beyond the Melting Pot “the point about the melting pot … is that it did not happen” (quoted in Joppke, 1996: 464). What Glazer and Moynihan were suggesting was the failure of “Americanization” policies to succeed in replacing ethnic cultures with an American one. This may be attributed to the persistent nature of ethnic identification (see the discussion of “primordialist” theories in Chapter 2). Alternatively, it may be seen as a kind of “return of the repressed,” with a resurgence of ethnic cultures following the explosion of the civil rights movements that allowed for the free expression of thoughts and ideas and encouraged pride in one’s identity.

Thus, the French assimilation policy, ostensibly based on individuality and equality, is evidently not as color blind as some of its supporters insist. In practice, assimilation policies meant that although people were allowed to practice their religion, customs, and so on (insofar as those did not clash with French values and customs), they enjoyed no special treatment or indeed any concessions. At the same time, children born to foreign parents had, until 1993, automatic rights to French citizenship.
