Les Éditions du GRET has a catalog of 230 titles, providing reference books that are highly appreciated by development professionals, in particular those in developing countries. The catalog notably contains the “Guides pratiques” and “Le Point sur” collections as well as co-publications with Karthala and CIRAD.
GRET also distributes e-publications on its website, notably the “Coopérer Aujourd’hui” and “Études et Travaux en ligne” collections run by its Scientific Directorate. These publications—105 titles—were downloaded 59,500 times in 2010.
In 2010, GRET developed a new collection, “Politiques et pratiques de développement” (development policies and practices), which was launched in January 2011. Destined for decision makers, institutional actors, and development professionals, these 4-page briefs aim to summarize the lessons one can learn from GRET’s interventions and studies in regard to development policy. The first issue covered free trade agreements and the latitude available to least developed countries.
GRET’s editorial strategy was renewed: its editorial activities will now focus on a “paper” collection—Les Guides pratiques—and several digital collections.
