Accessibility of this website
The Johann Heinrich von Thünen Institute endeavors to make its website accessible in accordance with the national legal provisions for the implementation of Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament and the Council.
This website was created in 2014 and is not yet completely accessible. The requirements of the current BITV (Ordinance on Accessible Information Technology) have only been partially met.
The site is currently being revised and will be relaunched shortly. A test of accessibility will be carried out for the relaunched website and the test results will be published here.
Which areas are not accessible?
- Some of our PDF documents are accessible. Many documents are old documents. These documents cannot be subsequently revised. We have set the goal of offering accessible PDF files in the future or offering the content in HTML format instead.
- Most of our videos are not accessible. Some subtitles are available. For newly posted videos, we endeavor to provide subtitles as soon as possible.
- Our interactive graphics and maps are not accessible. We will provide this with a suitable alternative text soon

The Federal Government Commissioner for Matters relating to Disabled Persons has an arbitration service in accordance with Section 16 BGG. The arbitration service has the task of settling disputes between people with disabilities and federal public authorities. You can turn to the arbitration service, if you are not satisfied with the answers from the above contact option.
It's not about finding winners or losers. Rather, the aim is to find a joint solution to a problem out of court with the help of the arbitration service.
The arbitration procedure is free of charge. You also do not need legal assistance.
You can find complete information about the arbitration procedure on the website of the arbitration service. There you can read about how an arbitration procedure works and how you can apply for arbitration. You can also submit the application in easy read or German sign language.
You can reach the arbitration service at the following address:
Schlichtungsstelle nach dem Behindertengleichstellungsgesetz bei dem Beauftragten der Bundesregierung für die Belange von Menschen mit Behinderungen
