NEW KINSHIP STRUCTURES IN FRANCE: A FIELD APPROACH
MICHEL ORIOL AND MARIE-ANTOINETTE HILY
This chapter discusses issues related to family structure of Tunisian and Portuguese immigrants in France. Immigrant families that maintain “bilateral attachments” to their country of origin and to France are able to adapt to the new culture while avoiding “social disaffiliation” from either country. Having extended family that remains in the country of origin helps immigrant families to maintain social and cultural ties and links to their broader familial network.
