Briefing paper

Briefing Paper (in German: Analysen und Stellungnahmen) are always four pages long and discuss ongoing and controversial issues in international relations. By including recommendations, the series primarily aims at policy makers, practitioners, and representatives of the (professional) media industry. Besides, the series is also open to everyone interested in developmental issues.

All editions of the series can be downloaded in full text and for free on our website.

In 2022, “Briefing Papers” and „Analysen und Stellungnahmen“ were merged in the new publicatiojn series „IDOS Policy Brief“.

    Clara Brandi / Axel Berger / Dominique Bruhn (2015)

    Multilateral co-operation has come up against its limits in recent years. Minilateral or plurilateral pioneer alliances can lend new impetus to international trade and climate policy, however, they should augment and support the multilateral process rather than replace it.

    Garroway, Christopher / Helmut Reisen (2015)

This Briefing Paper offers strategic options for the multilateral soft windows to maintain their relevance.
