This article discusses the efforts made by Emmanuel Macron to integrate French Muslims to French society. Each European government, including French, has tried to integrate Muslim population to their respective country’s society. Islam is the second biggest religion in France in terms of its followers. However, many have problems adapting to French society since they believe that religious values are above Republic’s ideology. In an attempt to integrate Muslim population, the government has tried to create the so-called Islam de France, but to no avail due to foreign intervention. This article focuses on efforts of Macron to integrate French Muslims to French society through the concretization of an efficient Islam de France during his presidential campaign to date. This study used historical research methodology, including source collection, verification, interpretation, and writing. The study shows that Macron has made different approaches compared to those implemented by his predecessor regarding Islam de France: adoption of anti-terrorism law to shut down the radical movement and plan to stop importing and funding Imams from Islamic countries. Despite progress in terms of an ideal Muslim, his policy was violated the Republic’s value itself and criticized, even brought to the International Court of Justice.
