TIME & POLICY: Time Uses, Time Preferences, and Policy Perceptions In Israel

Time is one of our most essential resources. While researchers from various disciplines have studied time, less attention has been paid to the connection between time and public policy. The current study explores four questions:
1) How does the Israeli public spend their time, vis-à-vis four kinds of time: sleep, work, care time and personal time?
2) What are their preferences regarding the use of time in these four categories?
3) What is the public support for different policy alternatives that affect different uses of time?
4) Is there a connection between the uses of time, preferences regarding the uses of time and policy alternatives?

We found a connection between the way people use their time, want to use their time and their policy preferences.

Speaker: Dr. Lihi Lahat is a senior lecturer in the Department of Administration & Public Policy at Sapir Academic College.

Her papers have been published in journals such as Policy Sciences, Social Policy & Administration, International Review of Administrative
Sciences and Poverty & Public Policy. Her areas of research are policymakers’ perceptions of poverty, the regulation of personal social services, the trust and well-being of public officials, uses of time and policy, and collaborative governance.
