Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi)
The Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi) is an independent non-profit think tank based in Berlin. Their mission is to improve global governance through research, policy advice and debate.
At GPPi they conduct research as a means to engage with the world around us to better understand and explain it. They analyze global affairs with aspirations of policy relevance and academic excellence. To this end, they partner with leading universities and research institutions, while basing their research questions on the analytical and normative issues that practitioners in global politics face. Building bridges between academia and practice also needs effective communication. They therefore seek to present their research results in a clear, accessible manner.
GPPi offers policy advice for clients from the public sector, including the United Nations, the European Commission and national governments. They translate the findings generated in their research into practical input to inform organizational change and learning. In this work, they tap into their clients´ deep understanding of the day-to-day practice of diplomacy, development cooperation or humanitarian action.
They use the insights of their research and policy advice to foster public debate on key issues in global politics, as well as feed the questions raised in global debates back into their research and advisory work. In addition, GPPi brings people together to exchange ideas and develop common initiatives. Through debate and dialogue they aim to support and assemble social and political entrepreneurs, build strategic communities and nurture global leadership.
