(p.1) Introduction
Radical Hope

Michal Krumer-Nevo

Policy Press

This chapter provides the context for the development of the Poverty-Aware Paradigm and outlines the central stages in the process of its implementation at the Ministry of Welfare and Social Services. Neo-liberal ideology that has influenced Israeli society since the 1980s has contributed to the blurring of the political nature of poverty and the denial of the role social work plays with regard to poverty. However, in recent years there have been signs of a reaction against these trends in Israel. The PAP is described as one of these reactions. In this context hope is crucial. The chapter also includes a map of the book with a summary of each of its chapters.

Keywords:   hope, radical social work, neo-liberalism, welfare, Israel
