About us

There are ten « Conver­gence Insti­tutes » (colla­bo­ra­tive insti­tutes) in France that were created in 2016 and 2017 on behalf of an inter­na­tional jury leading the 2nd Programme des Inves­tis­se­ments d’Avenir.

The goal is to gather scien­tific research by gathe­ring 600 resear­chers from various insti­tu­tions to combine disci­plines and create an original trai­ning program. The French Colla­bo­ra­tive Insti­tute on Migra­tion (CI Migra­tion) is the only program that brings toge­ther social sciences, human sciences and health sciences.

Within the CI Migra­tion, 5 specia­lised thematic depart­ments and a depart­ment dedi­cated to the academic course (Master’s Degree on Migra­tions) have been esta­bli­shed. The CI Migra­tion orga­nises joint research acti­vi­ties (such as semi­nars, scien­tific events, publi­shing, etc). Addi­tio­nally, it finances arising research projects as well as young resear­chers’ work. In 2020, a Master’s degree program has been put in place by the CI Migra­tions to combine courses in human sciences, social sciences and life sciences.

An impor­tant goal for the Insti­tute is to encou­rage and promote dialogues between science and society with the two follo­wing approaches : to analyse news events through its online revue De facto and to esta­blish a part­ner­ship with local offi­cials (teachers, asso­cia­tions, health care prac­ti­tio­ners, social services workers, etc).
