Anti-discrimination and equal opportunities have become hot issues in France, especially in the wake of the 2005 riots, which were a key factor in the recent creation of the Agency for Social Cohesion and Equal Opportunities (ANCSEC). In his lecture Dominique Dubois will outline the challenges faced by French policy-makers in a multi-ethnic society and new initiatives currently underway in response to them. Educated at the Political Science Institute in Paris and the Ecole Nationale d’Administration, France’s elite civil service college, Dubois has served in some of the most sensitive territories administered by France, including the troubled islands of New Caledonia and Corsica, both of which have seen periodic outbursts of violence by pro-independence movements. From 2003 to 2006 he was Prefect (senior administrative representative of the French government) in the Champagne-Ardenne region. He was appointed Director-General of the Agency for Social Cohesion and Equal Opportunities when it was created in 2006 in response to the previous year’s riots in disadvantaged areas of French cities.
