Welcome to our Lab!
Because policy matters
The lab focuses on policy studies that can inform and inspire change in Israel and abroad. The lab’s research focuses on policies in a range of fields in order to inquire what works and what does not and to assess the impact of land use policies.
Our team comprises of expert researchers in the fields of policy studies, law, urban design, political science, and sociology. The lab is headed by Assoc. Professor Nir Mualam, who is a seasoned lawyer, and planner.
Watch us in action!
For several years lab members have been intrigued by a strong wave of urban protests that emerged around the world (Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street, etc). The Lab’s new publication on the subject summarizes a two-year project designed to investigate whether social movements and urban protests make a difference.
A shorter version of the booklet was published as an article here
Does World Heritage create urban tensions? how do these look like? A collaborative effort of lab members, the Liebling Haus in Tel Aviv, and local artists explore this question in a new arts exhibition, relating to the World Heritage of Tel Aviv, and its impact on urban policy, and the urban environment.
We would love to hear from you.
