Sociologist and anthropologist Nacira Guenif specializes in migrations and ethnic minorities. She hopes that supporters of left winger Jean-Luc Mélenchon, eliminated in the first round of the election held two weeks ago, will vote for Macron on Sunday.

Nacira Guenif-Souilamas, University Paris 8 Vincennes-Saint-Denis: Yes, there could be something like that, I mean, if you consider that Europe is not exempt from all these tendencies, and that the France is part of Europe, and that it has not fought enough against states like Hungary or Poland which put forward this kind of policy against immigration, against civil rights.
