1 Der Senat 9. Juli 2015 Stellungnahme zum German Institute of Global and Area Studies Leibniz-Institut für Globale und Regionale Studien, Hamburg (GIGA) Inhaltsverzeichnis 1. Beurteilung und Empfehlungen Zur Stellungnahme des GIGA Förderempfehlung... 4 Anlage A: Darstellung Anlage B: Bewertungsbericht Anlage C: Stellungnahme der Einrichtung zum Bewertungsbericht

2 Stellungnahme zum GIGA 2 Vorbemerkung Die Einrichtungen der Forschung und der wissenschaftlichen Infrastruktur, die sich in der Leibniz-Gemeinschaft zusammengeschlossen haben, werden von Bund und Ländern wegen ihrer überregionalen Bedeutung und eines gesamtstaatlichen wissenschaftspolitischen Interesses gemeinsam gefördert. Turnusmäßig, spätestens alle sieben Jahre, überprüfen Bund und Länder, ob die Voraussetzungen für die gemeinsame Förderung einer Leibniz-Einrichtung noch erfüllt sind. 1 Die wesentliche Grundlage für die Überprüfung in der Gemeinsamen Wissenschaftskonferenz ist regelmäßig eine unabhängige Evaluierung durch den Senat der Leibniz- Gemeinschaft. Die Stellungnahmen des Senats bereitet der Senatsausschuss Evaluierung vor. Für die Bewertung einer Einrichtung setzt der Ausschuss Bewertungsgruppen mit unabhängigen, fachlich einschlägigen Sachverständigen ein. Vor diesem Hintergrund besuchte eine Bewertungsgruppe am 30. September und 1. Oktober 2014 das German Institute of Global and Area Studies Leibniz-Institut für Globale und Regionale Studien (GIGA) in Hamburg. Ihr stand eine vom GIGA erstellte Evaluierungsunterlage zur Verfügung. Die wesentlichen Aussagen dieser Unterlage sind in der Darstellung (Anlage A dieser Stellungnahme) zusammengefasst. Die Bewertungsgruppe erstellte im Anschluss an den Besuch den Bewertungsbericht (Anlage B). Das GIGA nahm dazu Stellung (Anlage C). Der Senat der Leibniz-Gemeinschaft verabschiedete am 9. Juli 2015 auf dieser Grundlage die vorliegende Stellungnahme. Der Senat dankt den Mitgliedern der Bewertungsgruppe und des Senatsausschusses Evaluierung für ihre Arbeit. 1. Beurteilung und Empfehlungen Der Senat schließt sich den Beurteilungen und Empfehlungen der Bewertungsgruppe an. Seinem satzungsgemäßen Auftrag entsprechend erforscht das GIGA die politischen, ökonomischen und sozialen Entwicklungen in den Weltregionen Afrika, Asien, Lateinamerika und Nahost. Dabei liegt das Alleinstellungsmerkmal im Bereich der Comparative Area Studies: Auf Grundlage der in den vier Regionalinstituten des GIGA über Jahrzehnte aufgebauten Fachkompetenz im Bereich der Area Studies wird vergleichend und regionenübergreifend geforscht. Dazu bearbeiten die vier dauerhaft eingerichteten Regionalinstitute gemeinsam in vier mittelfristig angelegten thematischen Forschungsprogrammen Fragen zur Struktur politischer Systeme, zu Gewalt und Sicherheit, zur Entwicklung und Globalisierung sowie zu weltweiten Machtverschiebungen. Die Leistungen der vier Regionalinstitute werden in drei Fällen als sehr gut und ein Mal als exzellent bewertet. Die überzeugenden Forschungsarbeiten des GIGA spiegeln sich in einer sehr guten Publikationsleistung. Sie konnte seit der letzten Evaluierung qualitativ und quantitativ deutlich gesteigert werden. Darüber hinaus bringt das GIGA vier anerkannte Zeitschriften heraus, die jeweils ein internationales Begutachtungsgremium besitzen und alle im Open-Access frei zugänglich sind. 1 Ausführungsvereinbarung zum GWK-Abkommen über die gemeinsame Förderung der Mitgliedseinrichtungen der Wissenschaftsgemeinschaft Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz e. V.

3 Stellungnahme zum GIGA 3 Aufbauend auf seinen Forschungsergebnissen erbringt das Institut ausgezeichnete und stark nachgefragte Beratungsleistungen für politische Entscheidungsträger und weitere gesellschaftliche Akteure. Über das 2009 eingerichtete Berlin Büro werden die entsprechenden Zielgruppen insbesondere auf Bundesebene nun noch effektiver erreicht. Das GIGA berät Ministerien, Parlamente und nichtstaatliche Organisationen zu Fragen der Außenpolitik, wirtschaftlichen und sozialen Entwicklungen in den vier Weltregionen sowie zu globalen Themen. Über die deutschsprachige GIGA-Focus-Reihe werden Forschungsergebnisse zudem auch für die Medien und die interessierte Öffentlichkeit aufbereitet. Der Senat begrüßt, dass das GIGA auf der Grundlage der eigenen Forschungen seine Beratungsaktivitäten ausbauen möchte und auch bei der Beratung von Institutionen auf internationaler Ebene wie den Vereinten Nationen oder der Europäischen Union eine wichtige Rolle anstrebt. Mit dem von der DFG als herausragende Forschungsbibliothek geförderten Informationszentrum (IZ) erfüllt das GIGA eine wichtige wissenschaftliche Infrastrukturaufgabe. Das IZ sammelt Literatur zu wirtschaftlichen, politischen und gesellschaftlichen Entwicklungen in den vier Weltregionen und ist das größte außeruniversitäre Informationszentrum für vergleichende Regionalstudien in Deutschland. Die institutionelle Förderung von Bund und Ländern ist auskömmlich. Die Drittmittelquote des GIGA ist angemessen und das Drittmittelportfolio ist ausgewogen. Lediglich auf Ebene der EU sollte das GIGA anstreben, mehr Projekte einzuwerben. Der Senat begrüßt, dass das GIGA ein solides Netzwerk an Hochschulpartnern in Norddeutschland aufgebaut hat und dieses weiter ausbauen möchte. Mit der Universität Hamburg sind nunmehr vier Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler des GIGA gemeinsam berufen; zudem ist eine gemeinsame Juniorprofessur geplant. Ebenfalls in Planung befindet sich eine gemeinsame Professur mit der Helmut Schmidt-Universität Hamburg. Darüber hinaus gibt es enge Kooperationen mit den Universitäten Göttingen und Lüneburg, mit denen das GIGA insgesamt drei Juniorprofessoren berufen hat. Auf der Basis seiner traditionell sehr guten internationalen Vernetzung ist es dem GIGA in den vergangenen Jahren gelungen, seine Verbindungen zu Partnern insbesondere in den Untersuchungsregionen deutlich auszuweiten. Das GIGA sollte nun eine Konsolidierung der zahlreichen Kooperationsbeziehungen im Ausland erreichen und sich darauf konzentrieren, die Zusammenarbeit mit besonders wichtigen Partnern gezielt weiterzuentwickeln. Dabei wird die Umsetzung der Pläne zur Einrichtung von vier Forschungsstrukturen zur vertieften Kooperation in jeweils einem ausgewählten Land der untersuchten Weltregionen hilfreich sein. Hierfür erhält das GIGA zusätzliche Mittel von Bund und Ländern. Es ist sehr erfreulich, dass 2014 eine Präsidentin berufen wurde, dennoch muss das GIGA den Frauenanteil auf der Leitungsebene weiter erhöhen. Da 2018 ruhestandsbedingt zwei leitende Positionen frei werden, sollte das GIGA sich aktiv darum bemühen, geeignete hochqualifizierte Kandidatinnen für diese Stellen zu gewinnen. Die Ausbildung und Betreuung des wissenschaftlichen Nachwuchses ist sehr gut. Auf der Basis der Hamburg International Graduate School for the Study of Regional Powers,

4 Stellungnahme zum GIGA 4 die mit Hilfe von Mitteln aus dem Wettbewerbsverfahren der Leibniz-Gemeinschaft von 2010 bis 2013 eingerichtet werden konnte, wurde ein strukturiertes Programm für alle Promovierenden am GIGA eingeführt. Es ist sehr erfreulich, dass hierfür zusätzliche Mittel im Rahmen eines von der EU geförderten Marie Curie Initial Training Network eingeworben werden konnten. Im Jahr 2004 war das GIGA, das damals noch den Namen Deutsches Übersee Institut trug, sehr kritisch vom Senat der Leibniz-Gemeinschaft evaluiert worden. Daraufhin war es unter einem neuen Präsidenten grundlegend reformiert worden und wurde bei der folgenden Evaluierung 2008 sehr positiv bewertet. Diese erfreuliche Entwicklung konnte das Institut in den folgenden Jahren kontinuierlich fortsetzen, auch nachdem im Jahr 2011 der damalige Präsident in den Ruhestand eingetreten war. Es ist zwar bedauerlich, dass seine Position bis 2014 vakant blieb, jedoch gelang es dem kommissarischen Leiter mit Unterstützung des gesamten Kollegiums die Zeit der Vakanz hervorragend zu überbrücken, wie auch die Ergebnisse der Evaluierung belegen. Es ist sehr erfreulich, dass ab Oktober 2014 eine international ausgewiesene Wissenschaftlerin als neue Präsidentin gewonnen werden konnte. Sie war zuvor in England an den Universitäten in Cambridge und Oxford tätig und ihre Aufgabe wird es nun sein, die sehr guten Arbeiten des GIGA weiterzuentwickeln. Um das wissenschaftliche Profil des GIGA noch stärker zu schärfen, sollte die theoretische Fundierung der vergleichenden Studien des GIGA weiter ausgebaut werden. Vor diesem Hintergrund sollten Überlegungen zur regionalen Ausdehnung der Arbeiten auf das Gebiet des Kaukasus und Zentralasiens zunächst zurückgestellt werden. Auf der Grundlage der langfristig vorgehaltenen Expertise in den vier Regionalinstituten betreibt das GIGA interdisziplinäre vergleichende Studien zu global relevanten Fragestellungen. Darauf aufbauend erbringt das GIGA unverzichtbare Beratungsleistungen für politische Entscheidungsträger sowie einen bedeutenden Wissenstransfer für die Öffentlichkeit. Zudem stellt das Institut mit dem GIGA Informationszentrum eine wichtige wissenschaftliche Infrastruktur bereit. Damit erfüllt das GIGA Aufgaben, die in dieser Form nicht an einer Hochschule wahrgenommen werden können. Eine Eingliederung des GIGA in eine Hochschule wird daher nicht empfohlen. Das GIGA erfüllt die Anforderungen, die an eine Einrichtung von überregionaler Bedeutung und gesamtstaatlichem wissenschaftspolitischem Interesse zu stellen sind. 2. Zur Stellungnahme des GIGA Der Senat begrüßt, dass das GIGA beabsichtigt, die Empfehlungen und Hinweise aus dem Bewertungsbericht bei seiner weiteren Arbeit zu berücksichtigen. 3. Förderempfehlung Der Senat der Leibniz-Gemeinschaft empfiehlt Bund und Ländern, das GIGA als Einrichtung der Forschung und der wissenschaftlichen Infrastruktur auf der Grundlage der Ausführungsvereinbarung WGL weiter zu fördern.

6 Status Report of GIGA A-2 1. Structure, Tasks and Institutional Environment Development and funding The GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies, Leibniz-Institut für Globale und Regionale Studien (GIGA), has been founded in 1964 under the name of German Overseas Institute (Deutsches Übersee-Institut). In 1977 it was integrated in the Blue List (Blaue Liste) of institutions receiving joint funding from the German federal and Länder governments. GIGA has been evaluated by the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat) in 1997 and by the Senate of the Leibniz Association in 2003/2004 and 2007/2008. GIGA adopted its present name after an institutional restructuring process in Responsible department at Länder level: Ministry of Science and Research, Hamburg Responsible department at federal level: Federal Foreign Office Legal form and organisation GIGA has the legal form of a foundation under the civic law of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. Its relevant committees are the Executive Board, the Research Council, the Board of Trustees, the Academic Advisory Board and the Council for Financial Affairs. The Executive Board is constituted by the president, the directors of the regional institutes and the head of finances and administration. It guides the institute, manages the allocation of human and financial resources, oversees the programme budget and the annual report, and implements resolutions passed by the Board of Trustees. The Research Council is constituted by the president, the directors of the regional institutes, the heads of the research programmes, the research manager, and the academic director of the GIGA Doctoral Programme. The Research Council develops the research agenda, elaborates the annual research plan and discusses strategic and material options affecting GIGA s research capacities. The Board of Trustees consists of representatives from each of the founding institutions (business organisations related to Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East), one representative of the federal government, one representative of the Hamburg government, and one representative of the Leibniz Association, as well as other selected members (altogether 9 to 18 members). The Board of Trustees supervises the management of the foundation s affairs. The Academic Advisory Board consists of external scientists, who have a professional career in GIGA s areas of research (altogether 6 to 12 members). It advises the Board of Trustees and the Executive Board on the academic work programme. It also evaluates the quality of GIGA s academic work on a regular basis, in accordance with the Leibniz Association quality assurance system (see chapter 6). The Council for Financial Affairs consists of no less than three and no more than five members. The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg and the federal government each provide a

7 Status Report of GIGA A-3 minimum of one member. The Council for Financial Affairs advises the Board of Trustees and the Executive Board on financial, organisational and personnel matters and also approves the investment and administration of GIGA s assets. Mission and tasks As defined in its charter, GIGA s mission is to conduct research on political, economic, and social developments in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East; to conduct comparative research on issues of global relevance; to pursue active knowledge transfer to decision-makers and to the general public; and to operate an information centre for specialised literature (GIGA Information Centre). Research structure At the core of GIGA s organisational structure is a matrix that combines four regional institutes with four research programmes (a detailed description is provided in chapter 4, see appendix 1 for GIGA s organisational chart). All scientists are affiliated with one regional institute and participate in at least one research programme. The four regional institutes Institute of African Affairs (IAA), Institute of Asian Studies (IAS), Institute of Latin American Studies (ILAS), and Institute of Middle East Studies (IMES) are the permanent units of the matrix. They provide the necessary area competence, maintain ties to their respective regions, act as hubs for the area studies communities, and conduct knowledge transfer on developments in the four world regions. The four research programmes (RP) are the more flexible units of the matrix. They address issues of particular importance: Political Systems (RP 1); Violence and Security (RP 2), Development and Globalisation (RP 3), and International Relations (RP 4). The RP bring in the disciplinary perspectives from the fields of political science, economics, and related disciplines. Furthermore, they promote comparative approaches on inter-, intra- and crossregional issues and conduct knowledge transfer on overarching topics. Finally, four service departments the GIGA Information Centre, the publications department, the communications department, and the central administration support the academic staff in their work. National and international scientific environment Institutes working on similar topics like GIGA are the Berlin Social Science Center (Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin, WZB) and the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (Hessische Stiftung Friedens- und Konfliktforschung, HSFK) which both are also members of the Leibniz Association as well as the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik, SWP), and the German Development Institute (Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik, DIE). GIGA views itself distinct from these non-university institutes in Germany, due to its focus on four world regions and its comparative approach. Because of its organisational structure and its long-term coherent research agenda, GIGA also views itself distinct from university-based centres in Germany. Such Centres are the Center for Area Studies at Freie Universität Berlin, the Centre for Area Studies at the

8 Status Report of GIGA A-4 University of Leipzig, the Global South Studies Center Cologne, the Käte Hamburger Kolleg / Centre for Global Cooperation Research at the University of Duisburg-Essen. In the international research community there are think tanks, university-based centres, and research institutes that work on similar topics like GIGA: Examples of international think tanks are the Institut Français des Relations Internationales, Paris; the South African Institute of International Affairs, Johannesburg; the Fundación para las Relaciones Internacionales y el Diálogo Exterior, Madrid; the Overseas Development Institute, London; the European Centre for Development Policy Management, Maastricht; or the Chatham House, London. The output of such think tanks is directed at an immediate consumer interest. They can only rarely engage in basic research. Examples of international university-based centres for area studies are the International and Comparative Area Studies Division, Stanford; the MacMillan Centre for International and Area Studies, Yale; the Munk School of Global Affairs, Toronto; the School of Interdisciplinary Area Studies, Oxford; the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation, Warwick; or the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies. Those centres also explicitly engage in global studies. With its broad teaching and research programme on Asia, Africa and the Middle East, the School of Oriental and African Studies associated to the University of London is more similar to GIGA. Most international research institutes covering similar topics have a more restricted thematic or disciplinary focus, as exemplified by the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), or the Institute of Development Studies at Sussex. Finally there is a category of research institutes that have more similarities with GIGA, e. g. the Centre d Etudes et de Recherches Internationales, Paris or the Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas in Mexico City. National interest and justification for funding as a non-university institution In the view of GIGA, understanding political, social and economic developments in different world regions is of utmost importance in a globalised and interconnected world with a changing global order. With its specific approach to area and comparative area studies, GIGA sees itself at the heart of this agenda. The institute bridges the gap between traditional area studies and the different disciplines in social sciences. Outreach and research-based knowledge transfer to policy-makers in Germany are key concerns. To be able to pursue its specific mission in a long-lasting and high-quality manner, GIGA requires the reliable and flexible institutional framework of an independent nonuniversity institute. Fast decision-making processes, lean bureaucratic structures, a participative and cooperative governance structure, recruitment based on a strategic research agenda, and the integration of all researchers in this agenda provide GIGA with the efficiency to conduct coherent research and with the flexibility to react in time to new political developments and research trends.

9 Status Report of GIGA A-5 2. General concept and profile Development of the institution since the last evaluation In 2011 the president of GIGA retired. Since several candidates declined, the process of finding a successor was ongoing until recently (see chapter 5 for more information); the acting president and the Executive Board have been steering and developing the institute. The new GIGA president takes office at 1 October GIGA s current profile is the result of a transformation that was initiated by a critical evaluation in 2003/2004. During a phase of restructuring from 2004 to 2006, the four formerly independent regional institutes were brought together into a common foundation and the administration and service departments were centralised. The research agenda underwent a reshaping with the introduction of the matrix structure in GIGA s successful execution of the restructuring was confirmed by the last evaluation in 2007 and followed by a phase of consolidation from 2007 to 2010 and a phase of profileraising from 2011 to 2014 in the areas of research, knowledge transfer and services. Development of the research profile During the first period after the evaluation in 2007, competence in the field of comparative area studies (CAS) was systematically developed through various measures regarding the recruitment and development of personnel, the structured training of junior researchers (see chapter 5), the introduction of strategic quality assurance instruments (see chapter 6) and the intensification of national and international networking (see chapter 4). According to GIGA, these measures led to a significant increase in third-party funding and peer-reviewed articles in international journals. From 2010 on up to now, GIGA views itself in a phase of profile-raising with the objective to further reinforce GIGA s position and to focus mainly on qualitative developments. A special focus has been placed on cross-regional themes. An integral part of GIGA s strategy to further develop its position in the field of CAS was the creation of currently three international networks that are coordinated by GIGA (see chapter 4). Development of the knowledge transfer activities As part of the restructuring described above, research-based knowledge transfer moved to the fore. During the consolidation phase, the German language GIGA Focus series was supplemented by an English-language international edition (since 2009) and later a Chinese-language international edition (since 2012). In 2007, the monthly GIGA Forum public lecture series was introduced as a format for the interested public. In 2009, GIGA institutionalised its presence in the federal capital through the GIGA Berlin Office. The office is staffed with five academic employees and has space for events of up to 45 persons. Further measures of strengthening the knowledge transfer were, among others, the introduction of the GIGA Talks, the establishment of a communications management, and the intensification of media relations.

10 Status Report of GIGA A-6 Development of the service activities GIGA s key academic services are the editorship of publications and the operation of the GIGA Information Centre (IZ). Before the restructuring, GIGA had four independent libraries and a variety of publication formats. The four regional libraries were brought together in the GIGA Information Centre that offers literature and informational services on Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East as well as on overarching and theoretical issues. The publication formats were replaced by the GIGA Working Papers series and the GIGA Journal Family (see below). The four journals were transformed into open access journals with funding from the German Research Foundation (DFG). The editorial boards of the journals were internationalised and all published research articles are peerreviewed. Results Publications In 2013 GIGA published 73 articles in peer-reviewed journals. See appendix 2 for all publications between 2011 and In order to guide the publishing activities of its researchers, GIGA adopted an approved reference list of journals in This list distinguishes between the following categories of journals: A (first third of the respective category in the SSCI), B (the bottom two-thirds of the respective category in the SSCI), C (peer-reviewed academic journals outside the SSCI), D and E (non peer-reviewed academic journals and non-academic journals) and finally X (new admissions in SSCI and journals of great strategic importance to the institution, acceptance only according to clearly defined criteria). In the view of GIGA, the success of the reference list is evidenced by the increase in the percentage of publications in journals of the categories A, B and X (from 29 % in 2007 to 81% in 2013). The GIGA Journal Family consists of the Africa Spectrum, the Journal of Current Chinese Affairs, the Journal of Current Southeast Asian Affairs and the Journal of Politics in Latin America. Africa Spectrum is listed in the SSCI (rank 9 in the category Area Studies in 2013), for the other journals, a listing is being prepared or applied for. The Journals are edited by GIGA researchers. They organise the peer-review process and are counselled by internationally staffed advisory boards. GIGA follows an open access policy. Downloads have risen from about in 2009 to almost in The GIGA Working Papers series serves as a precursor to the publication of peerreviewed articles and comprises about 30 working papers published each year. The dissemination of findings to political decision-makers, the media and the wider public primarily occurs through the GIGA Focus series, which provides concise analyses of current developments. The four regional Focus titles (Afrika, Asien, Lateinamerika, and Nahost) and the GIGA Focus Global, which concentrates on comparative and global issues, are published in German. They each appear ten times a year. The GIGA Focus International Edition is published in both English and Chinese.

11 Status Report of GIGA A-7 The communications department distributes the GIGA Focus (to approximately recipients), and the GIGA Working Papers (to approximately recipients). Knowledge transfer and policy advice On the basis of its research results, GIGA provides policy advice to different target groups. First, there is the executive branch at the federal level notably the Federal Foreign Office (FFO), the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The second target group of GIGA s policy advice is the legislative branch at the federal level, in particular the members of the Foreign Affairs Committee, the Committee on Economic Cooperation and Development, the Committee for Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs and the Defence Committee. GIGA has also provided advice to non-state actors. In order to intensify the direct attention of the target groups at the federal level, GIGA opened its Berlin Office in At Länder level, GIGA prepares information for political actors as well. For example, GIGA is member of the Hamburg Senate s working group on Latin America, and regularly carries out joint events on China and India with the Chamber of Commerce. GIGA s Institute of Asian Studies (IAS) is partner of the Hamburg Summit: China Meets Europe. Other addressees of policy advice are the EU and international organisations. GIGA researchers compiled briefing papers for the European Commission and participated in the EU Korea Public Diplomacy Network. GIGA cooperates with the Hamburg-based European Union/Latin America and Caribbean (EU-LAC) Foundation, which is funded by the EU as well as European and Latin American governments. Scientific services and infrastructure tasks GIGA s key academic services are the editorship of publications (see above) and the operation of the GIGA Information Centre (IZ). IZ is subdivided into four regional libraries, an area for cross-regional themes and another one for journals and licences. About books were purchased in the period from 2011 to At the end of 2013, the total collection comprised volumes and journals. IZ serves both internal and external audiences. Users can search IZ libraries via an online catalogue (OPAC). Along with 11 other German research institutes, IZ is part of the German Information Network International Relations and Area Studies. This network operates the World Affairs Online database, which offers about 85,000 full-texts on international relations and area studies. Additionally to the library services, IZ is systematically developing its open access activities. Academic events At GIGA, both regional institutes and research programmes are responsible for organising workshops or conferences on their research topics. In most cases, funding from the Fritz Thyssen Foundation or other institutions is acquired for these events. Furthermore, GIGA organises various associations and networks events in Hamburg. Examples include the 2011 PEGNet Conference ( Poor Countries, Poor People and the New Global Players ), the 2011 REPLA Conference ( Latin America between Interactions

12 Status Report of GIGA A-8 and Transformations: Rights, Politics and Development ) or the conference for the Governance in China Competence Network. Public relations GIGA s external communication strategy aims to provide incentives for societal debates and to raise awareness of the topics researched by the institute. The communications department informs via mailings about upcoming events and new publications. It also distributes the GIGA Focus Series and the GIGA Working Papers. Moreover, it organises the GIGA Forum and provides documentation that can be downloaded from the GIGA website. The GIGA Annual Report has been published in English since GIGA s website was relaunched in October Appropriateness of facilities, equipment and staffing Core funding and third party funding In 2013 the institutional funding by federal and Länder governments totalled 6.8 M (see appendix 3 for a detailed list). The third-party funds acquired by GIGA increased from 1.8 M in 2011 (23.4 % of GIGA s revenue) to 2.74 M in 2013 (28.5 %). GIGA aims at consolidating third-party funding at this level. Funding by the German Research Foundation (DFG) amounts to 28.5 % of GIGA s third-party budget (average between 2011 and 2013). Funding in the frame of the Leibniz Competition corresponds to over 10 % of GIGA s third-party budget (average ). An important additional source of third-party funding stems from national foundations above all, the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, the Volkswagen Foundation, the German Foundation for Peace Research and the Claussen-Simon Foundation (taken together, about 23 % averaged between 2011 and 2013). Federal and Länder funding accounts for about 32 % (average ). The majority of this is acquired competitively from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). EU-funding accounts for 3.4 % ( ). GIGA is taking part in three projects in the 7th Framework Programme. Facilities In Hamburg, GIGA is located at two sites: the main location and the location of the IAS (including the IZ s Asia library). The location of GIGA s main facilities in the city centre of Hamburg, at the shore of the Binnenalster lake, is an asset for the institute, in terms of visibility in the city s public space and accessibility to GIGA s public events. After a long-term renovation backlog, funding acquired from the federal government s second economic stimulus package in 2010 and 2011 covered the refurbishment of the IAS building. Using its own funds, GIGA began gradually modernising the office spaces at both sites in 2010, has been hiring and equipping the GIGA Berlin Office since 2009, and renovated and equipped a newly allocated 150-square-metre area at its main location in 2012/2013. GIGA plans to further improve its facilities.
