On May 22nd, the ISET Policy Institute, with the valuable support of the Swedish government, conducted a basic online course on the topic of green economy exclusively for local government officials.
In the framework of mentorship, on May 18th, ISET Policy Institute met with the Georgian Cold Storage and Logistics Association (GCSLA) to discuss the challenges in the cold storage supply chain in Georgia and explore potential solutions to address these issues.
Dr. Luc Leruth, who joined ISET in 2020 as a Lead Economist and now a resident research scholar, has co-authored a work for Think20 (T20), the official engagement group of the G20. This notable research comes on the back of Luc’s presentation to the G20's Task Force on Multilateralism and Global Governance.
In early February, Dr. Leruth gave a presentation to the G20's Task Force on Multilateralism and Global Governance. His address, entitled "Identifying Ultimate Beneficial Owners: A risk-based approach to improve the transparency of international financial flows", is also the key aspect of a research paper that is being co-authored and produced by representatives from the universities of Liege and Tilburg; it will be published by July. To have a member of ISET's faculty address members of a G20 Task Force is an extremely proud moment for ISET.
In order to equip citizens with knowledge and information on political parties' programs and help voters explore which political party is closest to their views, the ISET Policy Institute participated in designing and implementing Election Compass Georgia, a collaborative effort of Georgian institutions and countries' development partner organizations.
