German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and GIZ organise regional formats as part of the programme Managing Global Governance

Press Release of 29 September 2011

Since the year 2007 the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) organise the Training and Dialogue programme Managing Global Governance (MGG). DIE’s Global Governance School is part of the MGG-Programme. For the first time, DIE and GIZ are now organising a regional training workshop in Asia, together with Bank Indonesia and DEFINIT.

The workshop will take place from 3 to 14 October 2011 in Indonesia and will bring together young professionals from government institutions and regional organizations, central banks as well as universities and think tanks from ASEAN+3 countries. The most important aims of the workshop “Managing Regional and Global Governance (MRGG) in Asia” are the analysis of regional governance processes and the development of new approaches to meeting future challenges faced by the ASEAN+3 region in the context of a global environment which is changing rapidly. The processes within ASEAN+3 cannot be understood and managed without considering the complex and diverse connections with processes, systems and actors in the global arena. The next Managing Regional and Global Governance-Workshop will be held in South Africa.

About Managing Global Governance (MGG):
The MGG programme is an initiative of Germany’s Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development (BMZ) and implemented jointly by the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and GIZ. It is aimed at highly qualified young professionals from currently eight rising powers (Indonesia, Egypt, China, India, Pakistan, Mexico, Brazil, and South Africa), who work in government bodies, policy-oriented think tanks and research institutions. By offering a qualification for young researchers and government employees the programme intends to strengthen partner countries’ capacities in shaping globalisation processes as well as supporting them with the implementation of national reform policies to cope with global challenges, such as poverty and climate change. At the same time the programme wants to encourage high-level dialogue and networking between Germany/Europe and the participating countries. The aim is to establish effective, strategic partnerships on equal terms in order to identify possible collective approaches in finding solutions for global challenges.

The Institute in Brief:

The German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) is one of the leading Think Tanks for development policy world-wide. It is based in the UN City of Bonn. DIE builds bridges between theory and practice and works within international research networks. The key to DIE’s success is its institutional independence, which is guaranteed by the Institute’s founding statute. Since its founding in 1964, DIE has based its work on the interplay between Research, Consulting and Training. These three areas complement each other and are the factors responsible for the Institute’s distinctive profile.
