The chapter deals with the reasons for the rise of Salafism—especially its quietist version—among young Muslims in France. The main theme is the empowerment of young Muslims who are victims of discrimination and who have few opportunities. They are psychologically empowered against the French secular, republican cultural environment, which they see as antagonistic. The Chapter provides insight into the background and practices of Salafis in France as a specific subculture.

Keywords:   France, young Muslims, empowerment, discrimination, Salafism
