In 2009, a year after secular Mayor Nir Barkat was elected with more than 53% of the vote, the Jerusalem Institute for Policy Research issued a 420-page book titled A Vision for Jerusalem, edited by Gur Ofer. It was intended to serve as “a plan for the renewal of the capital of Israel,” a tool for the mayor and his staff. The study focused on the major problems of the city and suggested ways to identify and face them.

The broad scope of the study was centered on an examination of the demography of the city and its economic, social, cultural and political implications – from the lack and poor quality of municipal services up to the high cost of housing, the poverty of a large part of the population (cross-sector) and the issue of emigration of young, productive and mostly secular residents from the city.
