You are cordially invited to take part in our virtual panel discussion on “The future of German development policy – a contribution to the global common good?”. The German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) organizes this online event to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). We take the BMZ jubilee as an opportunity to sound out the future of German development policy in a panel discussion with international guests from academia and politics. After an introductory address by Prof. Dr. Anna-Katharina Hornidge, Director of DIE. We will discuss new topics and upcoming challenges for development policy and how it could contribute effectively to the global common good. The panel will explore development policy from multiple approaches with focus on international, European and German voices as well as the youth’s perspective on expectations for future (German) development policy.

We are looking very much forward to a fruitful discussion amongst researchers and policy-makers and an active audience challenging the panel with critical questions and inputs.
