About Us

Who are we?

The Governance Post is the student policy magazine of the Hertie School. We are an online platform for Hertie students, professionals, and academics to exchange, debate, share, and inform. We represent the voice of the Hertie community to the outside world.

Based in the political heart of Berlin, we have the privilege to witness policy-making at its pulse. Throughout history, Berlin has managed to grow and reinvent itself time and time again. A spirited symbol for change, the liberal and multicultural Berlin we see today continually inspires us to understand today, shape tomorrow – four words that set the goal for the Hertie community.

We feature article sections in Global Politics, Security & Governance; Economics & Finance; Health, Labour & Social PolicyEnergy, Environment & Infrastructure; Digitalisation, Innovation& Technology and Hertie School Life. Together, these elements are designed to cover a wide range of interests for students and researchers in a practice-oriented school.
