Presentation of the Internship Projects of the 10th Course of the Program for Economy, Society and Environment (Formerly the Program for Progressive Economists)

On Friday, June 7 students from three universities (Hebrew University Jerusalem, Tel Aviv University, and Ben Gurion University Be’er Sheva) gathered in Jerusalem to present their internship projects to their fellow students in the presence of faculty from the perspective universities, as well as external experts.

The aim of the program is to train economically and socially critical civil servants for the public sector. In addition to the regular lectures, workshops and seminars, the internships in the various ministries and other public institutions serve this purpose.

This year, we were able to gain the following ministries as partners: the Ministry of Welfare and Social Affairs, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Construction and Housing, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the Ministry of Environmental Protection and the Ministry for Social Equality.

Selected examples of topics that will be dealt with in the current internships: urban development in Arab communities in Israel, the situation of social housing, the effectiveness of housing subsidies, the use of green spaces in Arab communities.

 The students will be accompanied in their project work by first-class mentors, advisors, experienced economists, and current and former high-ranking civil servants.
