The Parisian apartment code of conduct

The Parisian apartment code of conduct

The Parisian apartment code of conduct

By Hugh Schofield
BBC News, Paris

Can the type of housing a city provides for its residents influence their behaviour, and if it does, should UK cities be learning lessons from their French neighbours?

The shibboleth is an amusing thing. As the Hebrew Bible teaches us, it is a way of distinguishing between two groups of people on the basis of an expression which only one group can pronounce.

I have always thought that for the French the perfect shibboleth is the Paris commuter rail system, the Reseau Express Regional or RER.
