Policy Analysis in Israel

Gila Menahem (Editor), Amos Zehavi (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Israel is considered a developed country yet both security issues and its frequently changing demographic makeup set Israel apart and imply that Israeli policy analysts must operate in a unique environment and grapple with exceptional challenges. This volume, part of the successful International Library of Policy Analysis series, brings together for the first time a comprehensive study of policy analysis in Israel. Following an introductory chapter that discusses the paradoxical history of policy analysis in Israel by Yehezkel Dror, leading figures from both the Israeli public and academic spheres discuss different aspects of policy analysis in Israel. While Israeli policy analysis is in some respects unique, Israel also represents a broad category of states that could be considered as policy analysis “late developers”. Hence, while Israeli policy analysis is fascinating in and of itself, its study also holds important lessons for other countries.
