Immigrant Employment Trajectories in France, 1968–2008: A Sociohistorical Approach
May 25th 2020
A new article written by team member Anton Perdoncin (EHESS, ERC Lubartworld), and Pierre Blavier (CNRS, Lille University) is now published in the French social science journal Population (Ined).
It analyses immigrant employment trajectories in France from 1968 to 2008, combining logistic modelisation of transitions and optimal matching methods.

The 1970s witnessed disruptions both in economic conditions and French migration policy. Do we find any trace of the economic crisis and border closures in immigrant employment trajectories? The authors address this question by reconstructing these trajectories using data from the Trajectories and Origins survey. This original approach reveals the diversity of male and female pathways and shows how they are related not only to individual characteristics but also to the sociohistorical context.
