The Adva Center is a leading Israeli progressive think-and-do tank that monitors social and economic developments. Adva’s studies of Israeli society present critical analyses of public policy in the areas of budgets, taxation and social services – education, health, housing, social security and welfare and transportation – including their implications for Israeli society as a whole and for each of its major social groups.
Since its establishment in 1991, Adva has been at the forefront of the struggle to advance equality, social justice and gender-responsive programming in Israel. We at Adva believe all Israelis – Jews and Arabs, women and men, high and low income persons – deserve high-quality public education, low-cost public health services, decent affordable housing, and a robust social security system. We also believe that an active citizenry is crucial to democracy.
