Economist reviews social security options in Palestine

The Department of Finance and Banking at Birzeit University held on March 20, 2017 a lecture to discuss the options for social security and protection systems in Palestine, presented by the researcher at Palestine Economic Policy Research institute (MAS) Misyef Jamil.

Jamil called for the unification of the multiple social protection schemes into a single social security system covering all sectors and segments of society which were not included in the currently applicable schemes. He pointed out that 50% of Palestinians are not included in any of the social protection policies.

Jamil started talking about the Social Security Law before its issuance and ended following its release in October 20, 2016.

A discussion arose discussing the challenges and consequences of joining any of the social security protection policies in Palestine.
