About Us







The Abkhazian Institute for Social and Economic Research (AISER) stands as a beacon of hope in a region stained by conflict. Our core mission is as ambitious as it is necessary: to foster peaceful resolution in the separatist regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. We believe that lasting peace cannot be achieved through military might or political posturing alone. True reconciliation requires a foundation of mutual understanding and collaboration. This is where AISER steps in.

We act as a catalyst, sparking innovative research that sheds light on the social, economic, and cultural realities of the region. Our research isn’t confined to dusty academic journals. We actively translate our findings into actionable solutions, shaping public policy and informing the decisions that hold the power to transform lives.

However, our approach goes beyond mere research. AISER is a firm believer in the power of collaboration. We champion joint projects across social and economic spheres, fostering cooperation on issues of shared interest. Imagine students from Abkhazia and South Ossetia learning alongside their Georgian counterparts, sharing knowledge and forging friendships in the hallowed halls of academia. Or envision healthcare professionals from across the region working together to develop and implement disease prevention strategies that benefit everyone. These are just a few examples of the collaborative projects we strive to cultivate.
