An examination of antiracist discourses and practices in france. It sets out to trace the development of post-war french antiracism through the life of antiracist organizations, setting this within a broader historical, political, and social context. It analyzes antiracism as a body of ideas in its own right, rather than as a mirror image of racism. The author uses archival material from french organizationss combined with observations from current events. She argues that antiracist discourses and practices are structured around four main themes: discrimination; representation, solidarity; and hegemony. While perceptions of discrimination have evolved into complex understandings of social exclusion, the representational functions of anti-racist groups were challenged by immigrant workers themselves. Solidarity remains central to antiracist practices in different political contexts. Underpinning these features lies a hegemonic social project through which antiracists have sought to promote a "common sense" through political and educational campaigns. The author concludes that the antiracist movement is an important component of civil society.
