ISET would like to congratulate two of its resident faculty members, Karine Torosyan and Norberto Pignatti, and ISET-PI Senior Researcher Maka Chitanava, on the publication of their joint paper. Entitled “Toothless reforms? The remarkable stability of female labor force participation in a top-reforming country”, the article has recently been published on the IZA Discussion Papers Series, from the Institute of Labor Economics, Bonn (the IZA Discussion Paper Series is ranked 11th worldwide for economics by IDEAS/RePEc); and the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Working Group Working Paper Series, one of the two Working Paper Series of the prestigious Becker Friedman Institute for Research in Economics (BFI), University of Chicago.
The next energy revolution is on our doorstep, and it is going to be driven by renewable power generation technologies, which potentially allow for a much more decentralized power system and a less heavy network. Still, power transmission network projects worth USD 40 trillion are being financed through different state and private investments all around the world. Mr. Michael Delphia, Senior Energy expert at USAID’s Governing for Growth Project discussed the concept of market-centered energy planning (M-CEP) with the ISET community at an open lecture. Throughout his career, Mr. Delphia has spent around 20 years in the US energy industry and has supported power and gas reforms in over 70 countries around the world.
