The Shoresh Institution is an independent, non-partisan policy research center.† The institution conducts impartial, evidence-based analyses of Israelís economy and civil society.† Its objective is to assist in moving the country towards a sustainable long-term trajectory that raises Israelís living standards while reducing disparity among its citizens.† To further this goal, the Shoresh Institution informs Israelís leading policymakers and the general public, both inside and outside the country, through briefings and accessible publications on the source, nature and scope of core issues facing the country, providing policy options that ensure and improve the well-being of all segments of Israeli society and create more equitable opportunities for its citizens.
††††††††††† Income and education gaps within Israel are among the highest in the developed world.† In addition, productivity gaps between developed countries and Israel are not only high, they have been increasing steadily since the 1970s.† Many current policy decisions and much of the public debate in Israel are based on conventional wisdom Ė which is often incorrect Ė instead of actual facts.† For the country to change course, identification of the root (shoresh) causes underlying Israelís most severe challenges is essential.† This requires state-of-the-art abilities to see the big picture, understand it, and disseminate it to others.
††††††††††† The need to satisfy this most basic national necessity has led some of Israelís top researchers to establish the Shoresh institution.† Its goal is to provide the countryís policy-makers and all those who care about Israel with reliable academic-level findings and evidence-based analyses in clear and accessible language.† These are fundamental building blocks essential for enabling strategic perspectives and comprehensive systemic solutions.
††††††††††† The apolitical nature of the Shoresh Institution Ė which differs from the more common research center model of advocacy Ė makes it a unique and important source of impartial information.† The experienced Shoresh team is a highly respected and trusted leader in its field, whose findings are cited by Israelís top policy-makers spanning the political spectrum.
