ISET Policy Institute
The ISET Policy Institute is one of the first university-based think-tanks in the South Caucasus. It is based at the International School of Economics at TSU (ISET).
Established in May 2011, ISET-PI builds upon ISET’s academic strength and TSU’s tradition of excellence and social engagement.
The Policy Institute is physically located on the ISET premises in the Vera district of Tbilisi and enjoys uninhibited access to ISET’s modern academic infrastructure, faculty, staff and students. Very importantly, ISET-PI inherited from the school a small but valuable research portfolio, including the now famous Khachapuri Index project. From inception, ISET-PI has received core support from the Open Society Institute’s Think Tank Fund. It is also a member of the Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE ) network, including such established centers of excellence in economics teaching and research as NES /CEFIR (Moscow), KIE/KSE (Kyiv), and BICEPS/SSE (Riga).
It is our hope that ISET-PI would be a major player in the Georgian and South Caucasus policy arenas. It would bring to the table the much needed professional expertise in economics and provide a model for sustaining policy research provision in a developing/transition country context.
