Some of the Center research in the last years is relevant to dealing with the war with Gaza and its aftermath. See list below. 

In addition to the research knowledge accumulated at the center, the center will be happy to assist the restoration efforts as much as possible. Relevant capabilities of the center for the rehabilitation process include:

  • Multidisciplinary consultation on issues related to policy, social rehabilitation, economic rehabilitation, and planning by researchers from a variety of institutions and fields with an understanding of emergency and rehabilitation issues.
  • Responding to specific research requests in a short time frame. For example, in December 2022, a review of literature and content from around the world regarding national planning to mitigate the effects of heat waves was ordered by the National Emergency Authority. The report was submitted to NEMA (National Emergency Management Authority - רח"ל) within about a month.
  • Ability to conduct a formative evaluation that will accompany the rehabilitation process; accompanying the restoration efforts in real time and indicating directions to improve the process as it evolves.
  • Ability to assist in measuring rehabilitation, resilience, and the development of society in the area that was affected by October 7 events during the rehabilitation process, including recommendations for a legal and regulatory framework.
