Abstract : The association Vivre en Ville has created, as a partner of the town council of the city of Toulouse, some jobs of social mediators in public services. Through qualitative and comprehensive investigation, this work questions about the meaning of these new jobs. At first, they have been a solution to young people unemployement and problems of urban insecurity. So we ask if they could be real job in long term. However the mediation agents have been recruited because of their own difficult integration and because they belong to ethnic minorities. In fact, they have soon considered as people in search of social integration who were assigned to deal with dirty work of public services. Our question about their insertion as young people coming from inner city is in fact a question about the policy of the city deny some ethnic categories.
