IDI was founded as a center for policy studies, straddling the spheres of politics and academia, the world of decision-makers, and the world of thinkers in Israel. IDI serves as a resource for politicians and government officials who are searching for independent, professional partners; examines various ideas; and proposes practical ways to implement them. Carefully maintaining its independent status, IDI assists the Knesset and its committees, government ministries and institutions, local authorities, and political parties by submitting research papers and proposals for changes and reforms to their modes of operation. In addition, IDI fulfills its mission by compiling comparative information on legislative topics and on the functioning of various democratic regimes.
