Abstract : Islam within the courses of language and culture of origin: under attack One cannot see the courses of language and culture "of origin" provided by Muslim countries as a machinery against integration.

Second, it argues about normative frames and expectation systems which possibly determine the way the courses are brought into play, as far as Islam is concerned, when out of the researcher's sight. Six of these frames are reviewed: i the juridical-political systems of the countries of origin, ii their organizational norms, iii their emigration policies, iv French political and organizational norms, v expectations of the target populations, and vi expectations of the pupils.
