GIGA Focus

In the various editions of the GIGA Focus, the GIGA publishes its research findings and concise analyses of current events. Four editions cover politics, economics, and society in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East, respectively. A transregional edition examines global trends.

Eight issues of each edition are published each year, in German or English. Summaries are available in both languages. We are happy to provide you with regular updates about our newest analyses – by e-mail-alert or RSS feed.
