Summary: This report highlights the city's deep divisions and the vast inequities in education, employment, and housing faced by the city's Muslim residents. While there have been shortcomings in the implementation of laïcité, France's long-standing policy of secularism in government affairs and public institutions, in Marseille, research shows that local-based initiatives can help foster better relations between Muslim residents and their city. The research in the report focused on the neighborhood of the 3rd arrondissement in Marseille and offers a snapshot of the daily lives and experiences of the city's diverse Muslim, non-Muslim, and minority residents. By engaging with communities and policymakers, local experts explored the primary concerns of Muslim inhabitants in the areas of education, employment, health, housing and social protection, citizenship and political participation, policing and security, media, belonging, identity, and interactions. The report follows up on its findings by offering a series of recommendations for local and national authorities, Muslim communities and other minority groups, NGOs and community organizations, the media, and broader civil society.
