Israel’s Arab citizens constitute 20% of Israel’s population. They have both unique needs and particular social, ethnic, and cultural characteristics. MJB continues to play a significant role in researching Israel’s major national social policy initiatives for the Arab population, including: early childhood, education reform, higher education, employment and career advancement, cultural adaptation of services and socio-economic development of the Bedouin community.
