Gender Economics Research Center (GERC) at Narxoz University was opened in spring 2018 with the financial and expert support of the Soros Foundation-Kazakhstan. The creation of the center was possible thanks to a grant from the Global Society in New York. We are the first and only center for research in gender economics in Kazakhstan and Central Asia. Our mission and vision are the promotion of economic well-being and equality for everyone. Our research fellows conduct research, publish articles, promote academic disciplines on gender economics in educational institutions of Kazakhstan and Central Asia.
