The Forum for Gender, Law and Policy


The Forum for Gender, Law and Policy, led by Prof. Noya Rimalt and Prof. Shulamit Almog, was established in 2014 as part of the the Faculty of Law at the University of Haifa. The forum serves as the central and first academic platform of its kind in Israel for the promotion of gender related research, teaching and formulating public policy. The forum aims to lead the formulation of a public agenda for undermining problems of gender inequality while focusing on law as a central  tool for empowering women and promoting gender equality in Israel.

Along with advocating for gender related legal and policy reforms the forum promotes public deliberations of issues of gender inequality in various circles of influence: government officials, legislators academics and feminist NGO’s  in Israel and around the world.
