The GIGA (German Institute of Global and Area Studies) researchers generate a large number of qualitative and quantitative research data. On this page you will find descriptions of this research data ("metadata") as well as information about the available access options. To facilitate its reuse, and to enhance research transparency, a large part of the GIGA research data is published in datorium, a repository hosted by the GESIS Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences: https://www.re3data.org/repository/r3d100011062
Our objective is to offer free access to as much of our data as possible, to guarantee the possibility of its citation, and to secure its safe storage. Metadata of research data that cannot be published open access due to its sensitivity is also shown on this page.
