Aaron Institute for Economic Policy Dedicated to the memory of Aaron Dovrat

​The vision of the Aaron Institute for Economic Policy is to foster economic growth and social resilience in Israel, by means of researching, modelling and developing modern, innovative and up-to-date strategies and policy tools for the Israeli economy, based on current global knowledge.


All modern economies aim for economic growth, achieved through increasing employment and a raising labor productivity. The Aaron Institute conducts economic research that yields proposals for innovative policy tools and reforms, which are designed to enhance growth, employment and productivity. The goal of policy research is to influence monetary and fiscal policy, as well as to formulate long-term plans in response to economic and social issues and to contribute to the narrowing of social gaps. The institute aims to influence professional discourse and spur discussion on the basis of credible information and socio-economic research, which will ultimately provide tools to support a growth path and create social resilience in Israel.


The institute's main mission is to develop policy strategies which would phase out weaknesses and enhance the strengths of the Israeli economy. We propose broad reforms as well as policy changes with regard to particular economic sectors. In this framework, the relative advantages of Israel in technological innovation as well as advances in the public and services sectors can be maximized.  The decisive impact of our work in Aaron Institute stems from defining quantitative goals while involving some of Israel's best economists in research and in discussions concerning our policy papers.
