Abstract

English Abstract: The purpose of this chapter is to introduce the privatization of social services in Israel and to examine its implications for recipients and providers, and the public at large. After providing an overview of the privatization of social services in Israel, it offers lessons and dilemmas from the Israeli case that might be of interest internationally. The chapter concludes by revisiting the consequences of the privatization of social services and looks forward to the future of privatization in this field through the vision of a “regulatory welfare state”, according to which, welfare state values are maintained in the new structure by regulatory means.
