REMISIS is a DOCUMENTARY NETWORK, the purpose of which is to locate documents about international migration and interethnic relationships point out their existence and make them available.

Created in 1979, on the initiative of the scientific management of the Department of Human Sciences and the CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research), the REMISIS network has provided a bibliographic database since 1986, accessible by subscription since 1988, by Minitel since 1992 and now available online.

REMISIS is the result of a multi-partnership association which involves the CNRS, FASILD (Social Action Fund for Integration and the Fight Against. Discrimination) and the Paris Diderot and Paris 8 universities. REMISIS personnel are attached to the CNRS Research Unit on Migration and Society. The network brings together around twenty private, public and association resource centres that contribute to the production of information and especially to the database which is accessible over the internet.
