Ivorians in France consist of migrants from Côte d'Ivoire and their descendants living and working in France. They are one of the diasporas from Black Africa in France.


Before 1990, this immigration was very limited. It was mostly students and businessmen who wanted to return in Côte d'Ivoire.[1] But with the economic crisis and the politic instability of their home country, they become more numerous.
