The Taub Center for Social Policy Studies in Israel Non-Profits
The Taub Center for Social Policy Studies in Israel is an independent, non-partisan, socioeconomic research institute based in Jerusalem. The Center conducts high-quality, impartial research on socioeconomic conditions in Israel, and develops innovative, equitable and practical options for macro public policies that advance the well-being of Israelis. The Center strives to influence public policy through direct communications with policy makers and by enriching the public debate that accompanies the decision making process. Founded in 1982, the Taub Center provides the country’s top policy makers and the general public with a professional, “big picture” perspective, as well as policy options, in the economic and social spheres. The Center's five interdisciplinary Policy Programs in education, labor, social welfare, health, and economics bring together prominent academic researchers and leading experts from the policy realm. Together, these policy fellows and Taub Center researchers carry out collaborative discussions and cutting-edge analyses of the nature, source, scope, and resolution of some of the most severe challenges facing Israel today.
