though the Spanda Foundation is not a publishing house, it publishes
– under its own inprint "Spanda Publishing" – occasional and working
papers such as final reports of its projects, results and reflections
from ongoing research, discussion and topical papers, conference
proceedings and the like to stimulate and disseminate new insight
in current issues. The series, published predominantly in English,
is targeted at international policymakers, academics, journalists
and the general public.
Commercially published books, as the multimedia/printed series
Jubilo and Musiké
projects, are co-published with commercial, international publishing
houses or counterparts. Availability will be listed in this section
of the web site.
