ISET

Our latest online presentation highlighted women’s rights in Georgia and crucially considered their role in employment, childcare, and within society. ISET began research on our latest regulatory impact assessment (RIA) in 2019 and concluded at the end of last year, the subject brought to light many significant points relating to female economic empowerment and parental leave.

We would like to thank Tamila Barkalaia, the deputy minister of the Ministry of Internally Displaced Persons from the Occupied Territories, Labour, Health and Social Affairs of Georgia, who kindly offered her views on ISET’s latest research on economic empowerment. She underscored how women’s economic activity has regularly been hampered and that, without change, women will continue to lag behind men. The deputy minister continued to point out that by assisting women in the workplace, offering maternity protection, and considering anti-discriminatory practices and the government’s role in protecting women in the labor market, Georgia can make significant improvements in the protection of women’s rights.

ISET’s director recently participated in the EU Stronger Together Conference, centered on the EaP Neighbourhood: Promoting the Clean Energy Transition in Eastern Partnership Countries. The conference, highlighting the key achievements and goals under clean energy initiatives, was hosted by the European Commission, the EU Delegation to Eastern Partnership Countries, Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER), Energy Community Secretariat (EnC), and International Energy Agency (IEA). Various key delegates and experts came together to discuss energy sector developments, regulation, and the objectives of key deliverables within Phase II of EU4Energy. Whilst our director, Tamar Sulukhia, offered her own perspectives during her talk on the Role of Universities in Improving Gender Imbalance in the Energy Sector.
