Abstract

Stable employment seems to be difficult to access for descendants of immigrants in contemporary France. This article discusses relative group size of ethnic communities as a possible explanation. Using data by Enquête Génération 98+7, I find empirical evidence that higher ethnic concentrations of North Africans, Southern Europeans and Asians increase the transition rates of non-immigrants. Particularly high concentrations of North Africans and Asians decrease transition rates in stable jobs for co-ethnics and highly educated North Afri-cans in the private sector
