The German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) has three independent publication series: Briefing Paper (in German: “Analysen und Stellungnahmen“), Studies, and Discussion Paper. From time to time, research fellows also have the possibility to publish their research findings in one of the DIE publication series.
Every Monday, the DIE comments on the latest trends and issues in international development policy by its Current Column.

Die aktuelle Kolumne, 02 October 2017
The relevance of impact assessments is not a new topic in development cooperation. There is an increasingly strong consensus in development policy that it is crucial to assess interventions by using rigorous methods. In Germany, the value and relevance of independent rigorous impact assessments has grown in recent years, although impact assessments are far less institutionalised than in other major donor countries.
