The magazine Hommes & Migrations, a magazine of social sciences specialized in the migratory dynamics, is the reflection tool about the contemporary questions related to the immigration of the Cité nationale de l’histoire de l’immigration.
Within the framework of its editorial program of 2011, the magazine published at the end of the past year a survey of a problem directly in connection with your missions: the immigration phenomenon in museums, an international comparison.
