ALGERIA AND GERMANY: THE PARADOXICAL BENCHMARKS OF FRENCH IDENTITY
This chapter analyzes how, in the case of France, the references that allowed the definition of a collective identity evolved between two paradoxical points: Algeria and Germany. There has been a progressive reversal in the positioning of these countries as reference groups: the French first showed opposition to Germany and solidarity with colonial Algeria, but thereafter they identified with Germany and they delegitimated the presence of Algerian immigrants in France.
