In the context of the European Council held on June 28th 2018, three French researchers, Virginie Guiraudon (CNRS/Sciences Po) Hélène Thiollet (CNRS/Sciences Po) and Camille Schmoll (Paris 7/ Institut universitaire de France) launched a call to create a Panel of International Experts on Migration and Asylum (IEPAM or GIEMA in French), following the experience of the IPCC. 

The call was signed by more than 600 people all over Europe, and beyond : https://www.giema.eu

The Institut Convergences Migrations (IC Migrations), the Chaire Migrations et Sociétés du Collège de France, the Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Evaluation of Public Policies (LIEPP) from Sciences Po and the Université Sorbonne Paris Cité (USPC) support the initiative. They jointly organize the first meeting on December 10, 2018.
