Background Information

The ISET Policy Institute (ISET-PI) is an initiative of the International School of Economics at Tbilisi State University (ISET). It was established by the Partnership for Economic Education and Research in 2011 as a Georgian NGO with financial support from the Think Tank Fund of the Open Society Foundation. ISET-PI was created as a university-based think tank to complement ISET’s academic arm, translate economic research into policy advice and inform policy making in the region. ISET, itself was established in 2006 with donor support following the strategic request of the Government of Georgia to create a sustainable institutional model for providing world-class economics education in the Caucasus. Creating a think tank on the ISET platform was thus regarded as a promising strategic endeavor. It was expected that high-quality economic research would contribute to the economic transition of both Georgia and the region.
