ממשלות ישראל משתמשות בוועדות של מומחים ולהטוטים ביורוקרטיים כדי להתחמק מטיפול במשבר האי-שוויון. אבל התמודדות רצינית עם מצוקות חברתיות מחייבת הכרעות מוסריות, ולכן יכולה להתבצע רק בזירה הפוליטית.

העשור הרביעי של מדינת ישראל התאפיין כמו קודמיו בפעילות רבה בנושאים של מדיניות הרווחה. פעילות זו הושפעה מן המהפך הפוליטי ב-1977 שהעלה לשלטון כוחות פוליטיים חדשים מן האגף הימני של הקשת הפוליטית, שהיו מחוייבים לאינדבידואליזם כלכלי. פרק זה סוקר את ההתפתחויות בתחום הרווחה בעשור זה.

The review and discussion focuses on the developm...

During its 62 years of existence, the National Insurance Institute (NII) has undergone major changes, in line with the radical shifts in Israeli society, that have affected its special status, its functions, the policies it pursued, the organizational and managerial manner of its operation and other aspects of its activities. All these have had an...

השימוש לרעה במערכת הביטחון הסוציאלי או הונאתה הם בעיה מרכזית הן לממשלות האחראיות להפעלתה והן לכלל האוכלוסייה הנזקקת לשירותיה. הבולטות של בעיה זו בעת האחרונה צריכה אפוא לעורר דאגה, משום שיש בכך כדי לפגוע בתפקיד החיוני שמערכת הביטחון הסוציאלי ממלאת בחברתנו. בשימוש לרעה הכוונה היא על פי רוב לכך שאנשים מקבלים מהמערכת כספים בצורת למלאות, תוך שימוש באמצע...
Article
This article examines the policies adopted by the former Likud government--and largely continued by the present Labour-led coalition government which took office in the second half of 1992--to absorb the 400000 new immigrants (most from the former Soviet Union) who arrived in Israel between 1989 and 1992. As part of that examination we will critica...

The universalistic welfare state and its distributional activities reflect the institutional expression of the modern state's commitment to the wel...

The privatization of social services is gaining popularity worldwide, and it is occurring in places as diverse as the United States and central and eastern Europe. It is also a concept that is now being widely adopted in Israel, where it is having a dramatic effect on the structure and function of Israeli social services. This article critically ex...
Article
Though a latecomer to the ranks of social democratic welfare states, Israel developed a modern system of social security in the span of three decades. The authors examine the key policy issues common to all social security systems, while analyzing the distinctive Israeli process of policymaking in each case. They look specifically, for example, at...

The new ‘Income Support Benefits Act’ which came into effect in January 1982, constitutes a major change in social policy and service administration in Israel. It created a functional and organisational separation between the cash and social care service benefits. The findings of this study indicate that the new policy improved the circumstances of...

Public assistance in Israel has increasingly become the focus of public debate. This article examines the social function of the system, its structure and its mode of operation, and considers its place in the broader framework of the country's social policy. Particular attention is paid to the prevailing political culture which obliges the system t...
Article
While ideology may not explain differences in welfare policy on an international comparative basis, it can help account for the process of policy development in a particular country. In Israel, ideology was very significant in the historical development of public assistance by its influence on social security policy choices concerning the removal o...
