Avishai Benish is an Assistant Professor at the School of Social Work and Social Policy at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His research focuses on the social and political implications of the increasing marketization of the welfare state and the incorporation of “Market” logic into the realm of the “State”. His research agenda is interdisciplinary, combining theories and methodologies from law, sociology and political economy. He has published in journals such as Public Administration, Journal of Social Policy and Law and Society Review. While at MaxPo, he will continue his research on the regulation and governance of the welfare state under Neo-liberalism.
