Marseille, a port city of immigration Thoughts on the "second-generation immigrants" - When one looks at the presence of the foreigner in the city, the question of the peculiarity of the city and its local history is inevitably taken into account. In that regard, Marseille has always represented a unique laboratory in France. In the first part, the paper elaborates on the conditions of the emergence of the "second-generation" category in France in order to underline and criticize better in the second part the Urban Ecology and Marxist theories most often referenced when analyzing this topic. How do these theories translate into practice within the context of Marseille? Unlike the working-class world from Northern France, it appears that business activities in the broad sense - activities provided to the person in transit - , are a challenging and lucrative path providing social enhancement and promotion to the second-generation youth. It shows a transfer from father to son rather than an intergenerational clash. Such a clash is more noticeable between former migrants and new entrants in France.

Keywords Marseille; immigration; second-generation; business activities.
