Abstract or Summary
  • In 2005, riots spread throughout urban peripheries of large French cities known as banlieues. Once the flames of burning cars and the smoke of teargas dissipated, experts began to question the causes that brought France into a state of emergency. The term banlieue describes suburb tower housing post-World War II built around the periphery of French cities. The term has become synonymous with crime, drugs, un-employment, and urban deprivation (Haddad and Balz 2006; Body-Gendrot 2010). The root of problems in the banlieues are being predominantly placed on immigrant families who choose not to assimilate into mainstream French 'identity' (Body-Gendrot 2010; Snow et al, 2007). The original question of this research was to discover the causes of civil unrest in the banlieues of France. Upon preliminary literature findings, ethnic groups and lack of trust in police, courts, and government has shown to be possible causes of the unrest but has not been tested. Therefore this paper will test two quantitative measurements to determine if there is or is not a significance between trust in police, courts, and government and an individual's ethnicity.
