The INEF runs a public reference library in LS 029, which is expanded in our fields of research on an ongoing basis.

Focus areas

In our collection you find a special selection of literature concerned with the following subjects:

• Development
• Peace and conflict research
• Globalization and Global Governance
• International Relations
• Political Systems


For searches in the library catalogue we provide a computer in our library. Our collection is incorporated in the main online catalogue "Primo" of the university library. It is listed at the location "D50". After a search query in the catalogue you can restrict search results to INEF library. To do so, please select "Inst. for Development and Peace" under the function "Refine My Results" in the sidebar.


Please note that our library is a reference library. This means that books may not be borrowed from it. However, it is possible to make copies with a copy card from the university.
