About us:

This global project has been initiated by Jacques Semelin, Research director at the Center for International Studies and Research (CERI) with the support of Sciences-Po Paris and the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS France).

Along with the editors and the orientation committee in charge of the development of the website’s geographical and thematic content, an International Academic Advisory Board of the pre-eminent scholars in the field, will ensure the quality and relevance of the posted data and will work vigilantly against any attempt to manipulate this website or exploit it for communitarian, political or ideological purposes.
