  2. Polishing a model of strategic thinking and conduct in a complex and dynamic environment with the hope that it will be emulated by the GOI;

  3. Training a cadre of people who specialize in strategic thinking, in preparation for a track of service in the Israeli public arena; ​​​​

  • The Reut Institute provides its services to people in positions of authority, influence and leadership pro bono.
