We are delighted to announce a new column in Der Tagesspiegel, authored by our President, Professor Amrita Narlikar. The column is called “Globale Gedanken” – literally “Global Thoughts” – first and foremost because its subject matter deals with global political and economic developments. In good measure, the column will tackle questions directly deriving from Amrita’s research expertise: multilateralism, trade, globalisation, and so forth. Sometimes she will also offer her personal reflections on more general issues, e.g. being an international academic in Germany, the role of women in German academia, the exchange between theory and practice. And on some rare occasions, she will comment on other things that matter globally – or should do anyway.
See now Amrita's analyses here on the following issues:
Amrita's first contribution to the column was published online in Tagesspiegel Causa on 6 May, and also came out in print on 11 May. It outlines the reasoning and motivation behind “Globale Gedanken” and also focuses specifically on Germany’s role in the UN Security Council.
The new issue of the GIGA Journal of Politics in Latin America offers background analysis on a variety of topics, such as conspiracy theories around the "Chaco War," public opinion on labour laws in Latin America, federal distributive politics in the Argentine provinces, and digital activism in Brazil.
Spotlight on a successful year 2018.
Since 2009, the institute has published all its in-house publications as Open Access. The contents have thereby been accessible online and free of charge worldwide. In 2019, the GIGA thus celebrates 10 years of Open Access for its four journals, which have recently begun to be published in cooperation with SAGE Publishing.
