Digital Development Debates is published by the Development Policy Forum of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. Each issue focuses on a prevailing topic from the development policy sector. Our authors – all experts from their respective fields – explore different facets of this central topic in their contributions. Digital Development Debates takes a two-tiered approach: We offer short journalistic articles aimed at interested laypeople, and more in-depth technical articles that provide well-founded and detailed information.
Digital Development Debates is an interdisciplinary format that takes advantage of every interactive opportunity: we want to encourage conversation between readers and authors. Our goal is to create a lively platform where experts, journalists, students, business people and other interested parties can continue to expand the existing pool of information and with room for debate – as the name Digital Development Debates promises.
