Mapping policy measures that have proved to be successful and providing concrete recommendations about the ability of implementing similar measures in Israel.
In 2013, the Macro Center for Political Economics and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung have decided to put the emphasis on two key aspects of the welfare state – the ever-growing social gaps and the economic future of the youth in Israel. These subjects are front and center in the public’s agenda and receive a wide coverage in the media, though they have not yet garnered that same attention amongst the government and legislative bodies.
