Economics and Society Program

The Economics and Society Program at the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute was founded because the institute has taken upon itself to identify the widening gaps in Israeli society, analyze them, and propose practical ways to reduce them. The program aims to create tools that will enable the public to participate in the socioeconomics discourse and to influence socioeconomic policy in Israel, with a focus on the key topical issues, including the income distribution, the labor market, and the public sector.
