A New Year’s Treat for Our German Speakers:
We partner with http://www.whathappened.io – A German-language morning briefing that delivers you the quintessence of global affairs in a short e-mail, 5x a week. Only the most important news from politics, economics, and business. We got a free code for you to try it out: If you enter “GD20” in the checkout on their website, you get a month free.
We wouldn’t recommend it if we at The German Diplomat weren’t subscribers to it ourselves: It’s a refreshingly neutral, no-drama, and data literate take on daily news. They also do in-depth once-a-week explainers about current topics, e.g. the Western Sahara conflict, vaccine logistics or progress in the fight against climate change. We highly recommend it!
