Agathe Voisin has been awarded the Albert Memmi Prize at the occasion of the international symposium dedicated to Attitudinal change towards Jews and Muslims in France in a comparative perspective which has been organised by the CEE on 18-20 April 2003. Her poster on “Ethnicity in young lives at a time of hardening nationalistic and identity tensions. From discriminations to new individuations in French and British societies” shows how young people live and politicize discrimination differently in Bondy and Newham.
