GLOBAL TRENDS. ANALYSIS is a joint publication series of the Institute for Development and Peace and the Development and Peace Foundation (sef:). The series aims to identify options for international policy action in an ever more complex world, presenting perspectives from different regions. It examines current developments and challenges in the light of long-term political trends, and illustrates facts with figures and tables. Our aim is to present complex issues in a comprehensible manner - also with the help of graphics. In doing so, we continue the tradition of the GLOBAL TRENDS book series, which was published from 1991 to 2015.
