Gender Analysis of the Labour Market Regulations in Armenia and Georgia

A Gender Analysis of the Labour Market Regulations in Armenia and Georgia was prepared by UN Women Consultant Dilbar Turakhanova in the framework of the inception phase of the project “Women’s Economic Empowerment in the South Caucasus”, funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).

The main objectives of the gender analysis were to assess the role and relevance of the labour market regulations or lack of such regulations for women’s economic empowerment and attainment of greater gender equality; and to assess which labour market regulations (policies and institutions) may impact the labour supply side to move women from the informal to the formal economy. Based upon the gender analysis, recommendations were made on how these regulations can be enhanced and better targeted to increase the employability of women, especially marginalized and vulnerable women, and their access to gainful jobs.
