The ISET Policy Institute has once again demonstrated its relevance and focus on regional economic research with the publication of a research paper in the 117th issue of the Caucasus Analytical Digest (CAD), a bimonthly online magazine. The Institute’s article, 'International Diversification of Agricultural Trade of Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia', was written by Phatima Mamardashvili, Salome Gelashvili, Ia Katsia, and Salome Deisadze and examined the agricultural trade relations of the three South Caucasus countries from 2002-2018. The research analyzed the differing economic results from the three countries' individual foreign trade policies, particularly with regards to the varying levels of cooperation between the South Caucasus nations Russia and the European Union.
Jointly produced by the University of Bremen's Research Centre for East European Studies, the University of Zurich's Centre for Eastern European Studies, the German Association for East European Studies, and CRRC Georgia, the CAD examines the political, economic, and social situation in the three South Caucasus states of Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia within the context of international and security dimensions of this region’s development. All contributions to the Caucasus Analytical Digest undergo a fast-track peer review, to ensure accurate and rapid analysis on the most important issues facing the region.
