La greffe coloniale en métropole : les français musulmans dans le recensement de 1954

Abstract : The Colonial Transplant in the French Metropole. “French Muslims from Algeria” in the 1954 Census From 1947 to 1962, the specific status of French Indigenous Muslims from colonial Algeria changed tremendously, getting closer to that of “French from Algeria”. This is particularly the case for Algerian residing in the French metropole who were, in theory at least, deemed French like anyone else. However, in practice, colonial migrants from Algeria living in France worried the French administration and endured a specific-discriminatory-treatment.
