In this sense, the purpose of this document is to offer an approach on how the marginalization and socio-economic conditions of second and third generation French Muslims, contribute to processes of jihadist radicalization and loyalty to the Islamic State. The main argument is that the hardening of laws and immigration policies, the strong socio-economic disparities and the lack of support for the integration of the muslim communities, in favour of assimilation, facilitates strong jihadist radicalization processes which contributes to french nationals affiliation to the terrorist organization Islamic State.
