Slavery: Reparations Through Transparency

specifically, for descendents of slaves in French overseas territories. he notes that reparations have previously been made by governments to former slaveholders post-abolition. also that (at least in France) the main body asking for reparations isn't asking for individual payments, but for funding of research/museums/etc. in this specific context, he is pro reparations

Secularism and Inequality: The French Hypocrisy

on Islamaphobia, though he never uses that word. he mentions an experiment revealing that CVs with Muslim-sounding names (esp male) are less likely to get callbacks, even when controlling for education/internships

For an Open Europe

urges France to adopt the same attitude towards refugees as Germany (though for Germany it's kind of a necessity due to the low birth rate). mentions UN projections that Germany's population will fall from 81 to 63 mil, and France's will rise from 64 to 76 mil, by 2100 (cool stat)
