Main areas of activity of the ABI include: Basic research into fundamental social, cultural and political developments in countries abroad as well as applied research and political consulting. Services include the training of personnel for operations in key scientific and practical sectors in developing countries.
According to a common definition, development policy consists of measures that are officially trying to improve living conditions in “less developed” countries. Postcolonial Studies examine the aftermath of colonialism in discourses and practices after its formal ending. Investigating colonial patterns of present-day development policy links both aspects of the research area.
The Department of Geography has a rich history that spans 130 years of teaching and research. It is the largest and one of the most distinguished geography departments in Germany and has fourteen independent research units that encompass a wide variety of geographical topics. Geomorphology, Hydrology, Development Geographies and Remote Sensing are just a few examples of our wide choice of research fields in Human and Physical Geographies. Each of our research fields is under the auspices of one or more professors in the department.
GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies in Hamburg emerged from the German Overseas Institute (founded in 1964) after a restructuring process in 2006. The institute is the largest German and one of the largest European research institutes of Area Studies and Comparative Area Studies. Its research is focussed on political, economic, and social developments in Africa, Asia, Latin America as well as North Africa, Near and Middle East. The Area Studies are furthermore concerned with developments in North-South and South-South relations.
The Institute was established in 1964 with funding from the Volkswagen Foundation. It is now part of the Department of Economics at the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen. The Institute co-operates with the Center for Globalization and Europeanization of the Economy (CeGE).
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.
Since its inception, the ICER has contributed to the international projection of the Complutense University of Madrid through its research, its graduate teaching, collaboration with other institutions for the implementation of academic activities aimed at specialists in the various disciplinary fields and its momentum to scientific and technological equipment developed by young researchers. This has been complemented by efforts to consolidate the internal structure of the Institute, especially in the field of finance, as a prerequisite to ensure the continuity of projects and activities in the coming years.
Advanced research and quality are the other priority dimension of the University and, of course, has done a remarkable ICEI activity ranging from projects already established in previous years, as the development of key work of the World Economy, new research on economic, social and labor relations, effects of scientific and technological innovation and international cooperation. Many of these research projects have been established with a multi-range, due precisely to its scientific importance.
The Institute's participation in various European scientific networks, developed under the V framework program of the European Union and other programs funded with Community budgets, shows much more than any other argument the quality of research being conducted within it.
It's mission is to contribute to the outreach of Spain, the Madrid and Universidad Complutense, being an open forum for discussion and analysis that are invited to participate to the entire scientific community, politics, business and society general civil. Therefore aims to eventually become, in collaboration with other institutions, a hub for international scientific activities.
The key objectives guiding the work of the Institute are:
- Developing its own line of research and teaching.
- The international project management that can be led by the University.
- Advice to public administrations, companies and other institutions in their international expansion.
- International projects that can be led by the University.
The International Center for Development and Decent Work (ICDD) is a global multidisciplinary network of eight partner universities on four continents with its head office at the University of Kassel (Germany). It cooperates closely with the International Labour Organization (ILO) and various non-governmental organizations. The ICDD contributes to the global fight against hunger and poverty through research and education on the Sustainable Development Goal #8 to promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all. A special focus lies thereby on the world’s 805 million people living in rural areas who face food insecurity.

PEGNet brings together researchers with an interest in issues revolving around the poverty-inequality-growth nexus in developing countries, and links them to the German and international development policy bodies. Its main aims are:
To facilitate cooperation among researchers and practitioners, e.g. by creating virtual research communities as common work platforms; To initiate joint activities such as the hosting of conferences and seminars and the realization of practically relevant research projects;
To promote the exchange of ideas between researchers and development practitioners;
To conduct joint program and project evaluations;
To use research results as an input for policy advice.
ISPC / SPRING website
SPRING (Spatial Planning for Regions in Growing Economies) is a two year Master´s degree programme that addresses up to date topics of spatial planning in developing countries. In lectures, participants of the SPRING Programme discuss for instance the rapid growth of megacities, searching for solutions in the conflict between environmental protection and economic development as well as dealing with strategies to improve traffic systems. The course starts with one year of study in Dortmund, Germany, followed by a second year at one of the four partner universities in Asia, Africa or Latin America. At TU Dortmund University SPRING is with now more than 25 years the oldest Master course and was the first one being conducted in English.
