ISET Faculty Members Publish in the Journal of Comparatıve Economics
Wednesday, 05 September, 2018

ISET would like to congratulate resident faculty members Norberto Pignatti and Karine Torosyan on the publication of a new article (together with Maksym Obrizan of the Kyiv School of Economics) entitled “Job market outcomes for IDPs: The case of Georgia”, in the Journal of Comparative Economics. Working Paper versions of the article are available here, and here.

The authors studied the labor market performance of Internally displaced people (IDPs) in Georgia. Their analysis indicates that the labor market outcomes for IDPs are much worse than those for local residents, both in terms of labor market participation, unemployment and remuneration, with gaps not reducing over time. ISET is proud that Professors Pignatti and Torosyan have authored yet another international paper and wishes them more academic successes in the future.
