Tamar Sulukhia, the Director of ISET and the ISET Policy Institute, took part in a discussion organized within the RECONOMY program. This online forum focused on the ways the Russian invasion of Ukraine has challenged the EU’s approach towards the future of Eastern Partnership countries, as well as prospects for EU integration. Another notable participant was Dr. Mikayel Hovhannisyan, Vice-Rector for Development and Innovations at Yerevan State University.
RECONOMY itself is a seven-year program for the Western Balkans and the Eastern Partnership that focuses on enabling women and young people, particularly from excluded and disadvantaged groups, to benefit from economic opportunities by inclusively and sustainably raising their income and offering greater access to decent jobs. Critically, its aims also include education & skills, policies & regulations, and business & financial services. RECONOMY has been implemented by the HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation in Eastern Europe, the South Caucasus, and the Western Balkans, under funding from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). And ISET’s Director, Tamar Sulukhia, is an Advisory Board member for the program. For more details, please visit the following link: https://www.reconomyprogram.com/
