The Groupe d’Economie Mondiale à Sciences Po (GEM) was established in 1998 as an independent research centre based at the Fondation Nationale des Sciences Politiques. Its initial focus was on analysing the increasingly complex implications of trade liberalisation and related domestic policy. In the context of growing trade in services and its impact on domestic regulation, GEM is also rapidly expanding its work on regulatory reforms.

At the enf of 2004, an initiative was launched with the AEI-Brookings Joint Center for Regulatory Studies to develop an independent source of regulatory analysis and policy advice in Europe and to develop a research agenda to address emerging regulatory issues of importance at the national, European, trans-Atlantic and international levels. The partnership came to an end in 2008 when the AEI-Brookings joint initiative ended and the Center for Regulatory Studies passed to AEI only). Then GEM continued working on these issues with other institutions and in particular the German Marshall Fund of the United States.
