Abstract:How does media contribute to the ongoing debates about French identity in the increasingly multicultural France of the twenty-first century? This thesis attempts to address this question by examining French policies concerning discrimination against ethnic minorities as well as using the French television show Engrenages as a case study. By providing a thorough history of French television and racial discrimination in France, and by using different methodological approaches such as coding and scene analysis, this thesis argues that France, similar to many other European Union countries, continues to struggle in its approaches to multicultural issues.
