Center for Research on Employment of Disadvantaged Populations

The expansion of opportunities for employment, vocational training, and career advancement is a critical means to address the general challenges of poverty and inequality between different population groups.  Despite many efforts in recent years to develop better strategies for dealing with these challenges, many unmet needs remain, further spurring the search for effective means of redress.  It is also widely agreed that professional development and maximal integration of disadvantaged populations into the labor force are essential to the continued growth of Israel's economy.

MJB’s Center for Research on Employment of Disadvantaged Populations is integral to the development of Israel’s social policy and services in this area.

Our research program for 2016 focuses on four major themes:


1. Holistic interventions for integration into the labor force

2. Promotion of low-income workers

3. New approaches to vocational training

4. Improving achievement and access to higher education
