Jerusalem, Israel

The Van Leer Jerusalem Institute (VLJI) engages in innovative interdisciplinary research and has a deep commitment to the public. Since 1959 the Institute has been a leading center for advanced studies and for intellectual public discourse in crucially important and socially sensitive fields, touching on the main foci of tension in Israeli society. The Institute was founded by the Van Leer family to advance knowledge in the realms of philosophy, society, and culture, and it is supported today by the Van Leer Group Foundation in Holland. The Institute’s activity, made possible by its renowned researchers, helps shape the public agenda in the areas of culture, society, and science.
