ABSTRACT

This paper discusses the following three issues. First - Answer to questions: why the Algerian immigrants came to France in a large scale before and after the Algerian War of Independence and why they tried to get the French nationality despite Algeria’s independence. Second - with regard to the process of acquiring French nationality, we examined the necessity of the French nationality law’s amendment and willingness of the Algerian immigrants to acquire France nationality. Third - with reference to the nationality of second generation of Algerian immigrants in France, we reviewed the policy of the French authorities concerning the identity of immigrants. As the result of this research, while trying to resolve the issues raised above, we found out that the French nationality problems of 1973 and 1993 were closely related. These problems were not just simple labor force issues but also the French identity issue.
