Evidence-Based Policy Strategies

When it comes to topics and trends in the areas of policymaking and social change, the Bertelsmann Stiftung systematically observes what is happening in other countries around the world. Working together with experts, institutions and other relevant actors, the foundation uses comparative analyses to develop concrete, issue-specific policymaking strategies in the areas of economics, employment, governance, social welfare and healthcare. The goal of these efforts is to promote a culture of learning among policymakers as they address the challenges we face in today’s globalized world.

Germany well positioned for globalization, although shortcomings exist in key policy areas

Compared to other western industrialized nations, Germany is well positioned to address the challenges arising from globalization. In terms of its economic performance and policymaking, however, it significantly lags its Scandinavian neighbors in a number of areas. Those are the findings of the Bertelsmann Stiftung's Sustainable Governance Indicators (SGI) study, which takes a comparative look at how the 30 OECD member states are poised to deal with current and coming challenges.
