The GIGA comprises researchers from the fields of Political Science, Economics, and related disciplines, striving for interdisciplinarity within the social sciences and beyond. We collaborate with leading institutions and researchers worldwide. The institute has a long-standing tradition of working not only on but with the regions. We are active in the regions we study via Research Platforms, established and new networks, and research stays. Our Information Centre fosters a unique and rich library collection on Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and global issues. Dedicated to outstanding research, doctoral education, and outreach, the GIGA attracts excellent minds from all over the world. We provide an inspiring institutional culture that promotes equal opportunity, family friendliness, and diversity.
