The development and knowledge sociologist Anna-Katharina Hornidge is director of the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and professor for global sustainable development at the University of Bonn. Deputy director Axel Berger accompanies the three training formats for young professionals at DIE: the Postgraduate Training Programme, the Managing Global Governance (MGG) Academy as well as the BMZ African-German Leadership Academy.
