Das Deutsche Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) gibt sechs eigenständige Publikationsreihen heraus: Analysen und Stellungnahmen, Briefing Paper, Studies und Discussion Paper sowie Two-Pager / Zweiseiter. In ihnen veröffentlichen die Wissenschaftler*innen des DIE ihre aktuellen Forschungsergebnisse. Auch Gastwissenschaftler*innen haben immer wieder die Möglichkeit, ihre Forschungsergebnisse in einer der DIE-Reihen zu publizieren.
Immer montags kommentiert das DIE in seiner Aktuellen Kolumne die neuesten Entwicklungen und Themen der internationalen Entwicklungspolitik.
Development practitioners learn, their organisations not so much. In this paper, Pablo Yanguas finds little evidence for the “learning hypothesis” that knowledge makes development agencies more effective. As we near 2030, the role of M&E, research, and adaptive approaches may need to be reassessed.
This paper presents a comprehensive analysis of the evolution of Ghana’s National Migration Policy (NMP). A major finding is that the NMP does not primarily respond to a perceived problem related to migration in Ghana but it rather pursues the migration related interests of the European Union (EU).

We simulate global extreme poverty until 2030 under different inequality and growth scenarios. These simulations suggest that inequality reduction is crucial for reaching the global poverty goals set by the global development community.

This paper brings together 39 academic studies on how armed conflict affects social cohesion. Reviewing the literature shows that conflict mostly harms social cohesion. However, this review also points toward several important caveats as well as blind-spots of the current literature.
Ten years after the Tunisian Revolution, democratic politics are in flux. Despite regular rounds of free and fair elections, persistent political infighting, entrenched structural inequalities and widespread perceptions of corruption have posed real challenges to meaningful and popular democracy.
There is a need for greater transparency of the United Nation’s (UN) development work at the country level. Existing transparency arrangements in many cases fall short of creating a practically meaningful degree of transparency at the level of projects.
With inequality reduction now being officially and broadly recognised as a key development objective, simple, economical and quick methodologies to assess focus on this area are needed. The methodology presented herein allows to roughly assess potential impacts on inequality in such a fashion.
