sef: insight presents interviews with international experts and opinion pieces from different world regions.

Complementing this range of brief formats, the sef: produces the following in-depth publication series:

GLOBAL TRENDS. ANALYSIS links current developments to long-term trends in global society. Based on facts and figures, it offers guidance and perspectives to policy-makers and society at large.

In addition to these regular series, sef: offers special publications in book or booklet form on an occasional basis, as a contribution to the political and academic debate in Germany.

Our previous publication series – the GLOBAL TRENDS, the Policy Papers, the Foreign Voices and the ONE World books – can be accessed via our website. These series have been discontinued.
