Old versus New: Preservation Policy in Jerusalem
Israel Kimhi 2014
The late Yigal Alon once stated: "when a people does not preserve its past, its present is uncertain and its future unclear.”.
After many observers determined that preservation efforts in the city of Jerusalem had slackened, the initiative for this report was launched at the Jerusalem Institute for Israel Studies (JIIS) in 2007. 

The report presented here (in Hebrew) comprises nine chapters: an overview of preservation in the city, the designation “historic city” and its significance, criteria for the selection of sites and neighborhoods for preservation, economic aspects of urban preservation – international and Israeli experience, planning tools and financial incentives for preservation measures in the city, the main problems in Jerusalem and the actual state of affairs vis-à-vis preservation, urban policy recommendations.
