The MGG programme is implemented by the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) in Bonn and funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Its core elements are the dialogue- und training programme MGG Academy, the MGG knowledge cooperation within the context of research projects as well as the policy dialogue in the form of focused consultations on strategic political processes from a German perspective and in the partner countries of the global South.
The activities aim at the joint development and implementation of contributions to address global challenges. MGG strengthens the institutional competencies of the partner organisations and creates innovative knowledge to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Thereby, all MGG partners should be empowered to participate in international policy processes and achieve joint impact.
The MGG Academy is geared towards highly-qualified young professionals who work in a partner institution of the MGG network or in an institution that is interested in future cooperation. Prospective participants should
work in a governmental organisation, policy-oriented think tank, research institution, civil society or private sector oranisation in an MGG partner country (Brazil, China, Europe, India, Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa),
work on issues relevant to global governance such as international trade, international economics and finance, environmental challenges, international security or development cooperation,
speak English fluently,
have at least three years of working experience,
be open to a broad variety of working methods,
be willing to reflect on collective and individual experiences and competencies,
