On November 5, PMC Research presented outcomes of the research entitled “Analysis of Gaps in the Law of Georgia on Public Service.”
The event was opened by Giorgi Khishtovani, Director of PMC Research, and the results of the research were presented by Giorgi Abashishvili, Affiliated Researcher of PMC Research.
The purpose of the study was to identify gaps hindering efficient human resource management, as well as to increase the predictability and protection of public servants’ activities.
“Despite an overall positive evaluation, the Law of Georgia on Public Service has some shortcomings in terms of practical implementation and raises a number of uncertainties, misguided expectations and forecasts among civil servants, hindering the implementation of good governance. At the same time, the law creates significant difficulties in the effective and fair management of public services,” noted Abashishvili.
Following on from the research outcomes, recommendations were made during the presentation, which, if carried out in the future. may significantly contribute to the improvement of the Law of Georgia on Public Service as well as the effective management of public services.
The analysis was based on the current version of the Law of Georgia on Public Service, which entered into force on 1 January 2018 in public institutions in Georgia.
The study was conducted as part of the project “Public Policy Discourse and Dialogue Platform,” which is supported by PMCG and implemented by PMC Research.
