GIGA Berlin Office

In keeping with the motto "theoria cum praxi," the German Institute for Global and Area Studies (GIGA) is committed to practice-relevant research and close exchange with the public and decision makers. The GIGA Berlin Office, located in the heart of the capital, is dedicated to knowledge transfer with Berlin-based political, civil society, academic, and media institutions. Through the GIGA Talks series, the Berlin office shares the results of the GIGA’s research and its regional expertise on global trends and current events in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.

We do not offer internships at the GIGA Berlin Office. Information on internships at the GIGA in Hamburg can be found here.
