This paper examines the origins, patterns, and motivations of North African immigration to France, as well as the present state of the immigrants in French society. Stereotypes and racist attitudes dating back to the Colonial period still affect the people of Algerian, Moroccan, and Tunisian origins. Religious and cultural differences provide a source of conflict, sometimes resulting in violence. North African immigrants have made generally unsuccessful attempts at uniting to provide increased recognition and acceptance in society. Both the French and North African community must reach compromises and make efforts to achieve harmony and integration in French society.
