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.
