Chapter
Mass education implies that higher education has become crucial to securing access to elite positions in the labor market. Surprisingly, research has paid little attention to how exactly the organization of higher education impacts on social structures and occupational attainment.

The French higher education and research system is based on a double divide of missions, statuses and recruitment procedures. On one side, over 30 public research organizations – whose permanent scientific staff varies from about 300 to over 12.000 – differentiate themselves from higher education (HE) institutions. On the other, the HE sector itsel...

En contribuant à com...
Book
Ce n’est que dans le courant des années 1970 que la sociologie achève de se voir gratifier de tous les attributs d’une discipline en France, à commencer par des cursus et des filières de recrutement propres. Dans le courant des années 1980, elle reprend son expansion démographique. Comment cette renaissance s’est-elle traduite sur le terrain scient...

Quality judgements in terms of academic standards of excellence required by external stakeholders such as labour markets and steering hierarchies obviously exert strong pressure on universities.
