Dear Reader

after seven years of inspiring discussions, „Digital Development Debates“ (DDD) has been discontinued in September 2017.

DDD was created in 2010 as an innovative digital platform for the development community. With 20 issues and more than 400 articles, DDD covered German and international development cooperation. Each year DDD published three or four issues focusing on the backgrounds of international development and the underlying concepts and debates.

Since many people still visit the website and read the articles, the page will continue to be accessible at the normal address. Please understand that it is no longer possible to contact the editors or comment on the articles.

We would like to thank our readers for more than half a million visits from more than 130 different countries. Our special gratitude is extended to more than 400 authors from all over the world who supplied us with brilliant articles and stories about original projects, new concepts and critical perspectives. Among these authors are renowned personalities such as Kofi Annan, Vandana Shiva, Jean Ziegler and Kasha Nabagesera, just to mention a few.

We hope you enjoy the read!

The Editors of DDD
