Migrinter is a research laboratory specialized in the study of international migrations. Created in 1985 by the geographer Gildas Simon, Migrinter contributes for more than thirty years to institutionalize the study of migrations nationally as well as internationally. Its members (researchers, university lecturers and researchers, research support staff) strive for a comparative and multidisciplinary approach of migrations (geography, anthropology, law, history, communication and information sciences, sociology etc.). They pay particular attention to ethic issues linked to research and commit to the production of a shared knowledge between education, institutions and civil society. They play an active role in epistemological and methodological debates and engage in the creation of a critical space for reflection on international migrations.
