Chapter Summary

Two characteristics specific to Institut national des langues et civilisations orientales (INALCO) are stressed here. The first refers to the presence of Islamism in the Department of Arabic which has been marked by several incidents in recent years. A second characteristic of INALCO is the almost total absence of extreme left and left-leaning student unions. The internal life of the Institut is very weakly politicised. The campus at Jussieu is home to a large part of both the universities Paris-VI and Paris-VII. If traditional, extreme-right anti-Semitism is rooted in a national tradition which it perpetuates, the anti-Semitism of leftist or third-worldist inspiration is 'global', because it is incomprehensible without reference to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and to an anti-Zionism from which it springs or which it possibly even creates.

Keywords: anti-Semitism; Institut national des langues et civilisations orientales (INALCO); Institut; Islamism; Israeli-Palestinian conflict; Jussieu campus; left-leaning student unions
