Monday, 12 March, 2018

ISET would like to congratulate two of its resident faculty members, Karine Torosyan and Norberto Pignatti, together with our visiting faculty member Maksym Obrizan, on the publication of their new joint paper “Job market outcomes of IDPs: the case of Georgia”, in the IZA Discussion Paper Series from the Institute of Labor Economics, Bonn (the series is ranked 6th worldwide for economics by IDEAS/RePEc). The paper was also published as Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Working Group (HCEO) Working Paper (the HCEO working paper series is one of the two Working Paper Series of the prestigious Becker Friedman Institute for Research in Economics (BFI), University of Chicago).

In their joint work, the authors investigated the job market outcomes of Internally Displaced People (IDPs) in Georgia. Using data from a nationally representative Household Survey covering the period of 2004-2016, the authors highlighted the difficulties faced by IDPs in the Georgian labor market. The authors also discussed how more active and inclusive policies might be required to fully integrate IDPs in the Georgian labor market.

ISET is proud of the authors and wishes them every success in the publication process.
