Founded in 2015, The Boris Mints Institute for Strategic Policy Solutions to Global Challenges at Tel-Aviv University encourages innovative thinking, research and planning to promote a significant positive change in the world. We focus on designing innovative, multidisciplinary and sustainable strategic and operational plans to enhance the welfare around the globe.


The Institute brings together top-tier academics, world leaders, and talented and passionate researchers from Tel Aviv University and other leading universities to:

  • Analyze pressing issues from an interdisciplinary, broad systemic perspective;

  • Draw on TAU expertise, across various faculties, confronting contemporary challenges of inequality, democracy, economics, human development, environmental engineering, sustainability and welfare;

  • Formulate novel and practical solutions backed by rigorous scientific methodology;

  • Deliver strategic policy recommendations and detailed blueprints for implementation to decision-makers worldwide.

The Institute currently operates six research labs, conducting collaborative research involving technological, social, and policy factors.


A significant part of our research is based on a Startup-like methodology, including a “hands-on” approach, creating economically logical, sustainable, and fair policy solutions.


Starting 2022, the Institute aims to confront two significant global challenges that pose a substantial threat to global stability and sustainability: The Structure of Democratic and Economic Institutions.
