Deutsches Jugendinstitut e.V., München


One of Germany’s largest social science institutes focusing on research and development around the topics of children, youth and families, as well as the political and practical areas related to them.

The DJI is a non-university institute at the interface between various academic disciplines, federal levels, stakeholder groups, areas of the political sphere and practitioners. As such, the Institute offers practice-oriented insights from empirical research, the latest in policy consulting as well as research support and stimulus for practitioners. At the same time, it serves as an intermediary between science, policy, and practitioners.
