Social Inclusion

Complex social problems such as poverty, domestic violence, crime, and the exclusion of minority populations are of concern to the government and society in Israel. In recent years, the government has passed several resolutions aimed at reducing these phenomena and promoting a more egalitarian and healthier society through legislation and cross-cutting national programs.

During the past year, MJB established the Social Inclusion Team. The team's goal is to assist the government and civil society by conducting research and providing data on solutions that will enable the social integration of minority groups and people living in poverty and social distress. The team is also engaged in research on reducing risk among minority groups that experience economic and social marginality or are subject to discrimination and stigmatization.

In 2021, the team's work will most likely be influenced by the COVID-19 crisis and its research projects will include components relevant to the pandemic.
