Research and Policy Advice

The German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) is one of the leading Think Tanks for development policy world-wide. DIE draws together the knowledge of development research available worldwide, dedicating its work to key issues facing the future of international cooperation. DIE’s research is theory-based, empirically backed, and application-oriented. The policy advice and consulting services DIE provides are bearing on the framework conditions of development policy, including issues concerned with world economic policy, foreign policy, and security policy.

The research staff is involved in numerous international renowned research projects and contributes to policy networks. Their research and publications focus on practice-oriented research and is divided into seven research fields, which are organised in six departments and inter-departmental research areas.
