The Gender, Environment, Religion and Migration Studies and Research Laboratory (GERM) is governed by a Board of Directors of teacher-researchers, academics and researchers affiliated to national and international institutions.

Professor Aly Tandian
a sociologist of migration, surrounded by experienced geographers, statisticians, anthropologists, computer graphics specialists, etc., and by doctoral students.
The Gender, Environment, Religion and Migration Studies and Research Laboratory (GERM) is a forum for the exchange of information on migration and aims to become a reference centre.
It relies on proven collaborations in the framework of research programmes. It contributes to overcoming the boundaries that stand in the way of a renewed understanding of migration dynamics. Through its activities, GERM gathers information for evidence-based policy-making. In this way, it ensures that migration is taken into account as a cross-cutting dimension to be integrated into planning tools at the level of areas of departure.
