Institute of Development Research and Development Policy


Due to the wave of political transformations in Africa and Central Asia in the early 1990s created new challenges for development research. Against this backdrop the IEE expanded its activities and research agenda. The fellows of the institute have a very strong focus on the study of actual economic, political, and social transformation processes. Of particular importance is the interdisciplinary analysis of economic reforms and poverty reduction, democratization, decentralization, crisis prevention, and human rights and the rule of law.
