Research project on potential gender-determined differences in civil service career paths in Georgia is the UNDP funded initiative implemented by the Institute for Development of Freedom of Information (IDFI).The project aims to identify the key ways in which gender determines differences in career paths and the extent to which these differences are perceived as detrimental to the individual civil servants and the civil service as a whole.

- What are the perceptions of male and female civil servants on the necessity and benefits of the career development in civil service?
- What are the needs, challenges, and assumptions, positive and negative factors of/for male and female civil servants at each stage of career development?
