Social Services in Israel 1986-87
Author: Yaakov Kop (editor) Policy Research

This booklet presents a summary of findings extracted from the Center’s annual report on social services in Israel 1986-87.

It draws on selected studies undertaken by the Center’s researchers, as well as deliberations with other policy experts from academia, government and Knesset, the private and not-for-profit sectors, and the trade unions. This summary also reflects the Center’s special interest in the links between economic and social policies.  Unlike earlier summaries, this one presents not only a macro-analysis of social spending for the human services and their target groups but also presents a future scenario based on the demographics of Israel’s population. It suggests that the consequences of Israel’s demographic situation must be carefully taken into account as the social policies of the nineties are in the making.
