The central claim of this chapter is that policy practice is an emergent form of social work practice in Israel, yet, to a large extent, it remains relatively marginalised in the field. Following a brief description of the context in which social workers operate, the Israeli welfare state and the social work profession in Israel, the place that policy practice plays in contemporary social work discourse, education and practice will be examined and explained. The chapter will conclude with a brief summary of the trends identified.
