Les transformations récentes de l’enseignement supérieur (politiques de regroupement, influence des classements universitaires, etc.) ont pu alimenter la crainte d’assister à une polarisation entre, d’un côté, un nombre restreint de world‑class universities et, de l’autre, un vaste ensemble d’universités de second rang. Néanmoins, peu de travaux qu...

L'université française, lieu de brassage ou de ségrégation sociale ? Mesure de la polarisation du système universitaire français (2007-2015). Résumé Les transformations récentes de l'enseignement supérieur (politiques de regroupement, influence des classements universitaires, etc.) ont pu alimenter la crainte d'assister à une polarisation entre, d'...
Chapter
This chapter studies the transformations of research universities under intellectual monopoly capitalism. In a context where a few corporations have monopolized the capacity to plan and profit from knowledge, conforming intellectual monopolies, we suggest that research universities play a crucial role that required a twofold transformation. We conc...
Article
This paper reflects on the recent changes in the French academic world. Drawing on a series of significant figures and statistics, the author traces the ongoing dismantling of French higher education and research, up to the recent law on multi-year research programming (LPPR).

The capitalist commodity is the dominant form of wealth in today’s society, but it is not the only one. We use the commodification of higher education and research as an experiment to observe the devices that support such a transformation of social form. This is a constructivist approach to value: value has to be constructed and supported as a repr...
Article
Between 2005 and 2015 a series of science, technology and innovation policies were deployed in Argentina among which academic research collaborations with industry was particularly fostered. This paper studies the effect of those policies on newer researchers, defined as those with PhD or postdoctoral scholarships, looking at their motivations to c...
Article
Universities have historically contributed to the reproduction of capitalism. However, they have been historically conceived as a separate sphere or institution detached from the Market, thus only indirect participants of capital’s accumulation processes. Our aim in this article is precisely to contribute to acknowledge this transformation by furth...
Article
Using a natural experiment, a sharp rise in tuition fees in some of the programmes at the University of Paris 9-Dauphine, we study the impact of tuition fees on students’ pathways, and outcomes. We apply an optimal matching method to the national database of students’ registrations (SISE) to define a typology of pathways. We then use a nonordered m...

Alors que dans les pays anglo-saxons, les frais d'inscription à l'université ne cessent d'augmenter au point de représenter l'une des principales sources d'endettement des étudiants et de leurs familles, ils constituent l'espoir secret d'universités françaises exsangues. Ce livre montre que s'engager ainsi dans la voie de la financiarisation de l'e...

We study some extensions of the empirical likelihood method, when the Kullback distance is replaced by some general convex divergence or φ-discrepancy. We show that this generalized empirical likelihood method is asymptotically valid for general Hadamard differentiable functionals.

Owing to the international competition between colleges, tuition fees keep rising. Whereas the top French business school HEC (École des hautes études commerciales de Paris) leads this trend in France, the Écoles normales supérieures (ENS) is unique in that its students are paid as civil servants. This article tackles how the cost of studies plays...

Full-text available
In this paper, we study the higher education financing based on the classical contributory versus self-funded pension funding scheme. We provide a brief discussion of how a system based on student debt can be seen 'funded' and why it fails to ensure equity and efficiency and funding for the longer term. We also define a contributory financing schem...

Should we (really) Raise Tuition Fees ? This article offers a critical analysis of the usual arguments in favour of tuition fees : i) the iniquity of the French system, ii) the efficiency of fees to select, guide and encourage the effort, iii) the financing of the university. We defend the thesis that, due to these costs and due to debt burden, pot...

Après avoir rappelé qu'un régime par capitalisation ne garantissait ni équité, ni efficience, ni même le financement de l'enseignement supérieur, nous définissons ce que pourrait être un régime d'éducation par répartition et discuté de ses atouts et limites, pour construire une approche théorique du concept. Une éducation par répartition conjugue l...

Full-text available
After a short criticism of the "self-funded education scheme" which is widely implemented in the world and often based on tuition fees, this article develops theoretical basis for a "contributory education scheme". This model is characterised 1) by a universal access for students to grants allowing them to take charge of themselves during their hig...

Empirical likelihood is a powerful semi-parametric method increasingly investigated in the literature. However, most authors essentially focus on an i.i.d. setting. In the case of dependent data, the classical empirical likelihood method cannot be directly applied on the data but rather on blocks of consecutive data catching the dependence structur...

Full-text available
Tuition fees have been spreading through developed countries in the last decade. Beyond the obvious interest of funding universities, it is advocated that they could serve as a tool to select students. According to some recent models, in presence of asymmetric and imperfect information on the candidates' capacities, tuition should be the only selec...

This paper presents a new estimation scheme for signal processing problems in unknown noise field. The Empirical Likelihood has been introduced in the mathematical community, but, surprisingly, it is still unknown in the signal processing community. This estimation method is an alternative to estimate unknown parameters without using a model for th...

Dans un récent article, Gary-Bobo et Trannoy (2008) avancent l'idée que, sous certaines conditions, les frais d'inscription à l'université peuvent être un élément socialement utile pour sélectionner les étudiants à l'entrée de l'université. Les conditions définies dans leur article sont essentiellement l'existence d'informations imparfaites et asym...

In diseases caused by a deleterious gene mutation, knowledge of age-specific cumulative risks is necessary for medical management of mutation carriers. When pedigrees are ascertained through at least one affected individual, ascertainment bias can be corrected by using a parametric method such as the Proband's phenotype Exclusion Likelihood, or PEL...

Full-text available
This paper presents an improved estimation scheme when the clutter distribution is unknown. The Empirical Likelihood (EL) is a recent semi-parametric estimation method which allows to estimate unknown parameters by using information contained in the observed data such as constraints on the parameter of interest as well as an a priori structure. The...

This article introduces an original methodology based on empirical likelihood, which aims at combining different food contamination and consumption surveys to provide risk managers with a risk measure, taking into account all the available information. This risk index is defined as the probability that exposure to a contaminant exceeds a safe dose....

In a non-parametric framework, we establish some non-asymptotic bounds for self-normalized sums and quadratic forms in the multivariate case for symmetric and general random variables. This bounds are entirely explicit and essentially depends in the general case on the kurtosis of the Euclidean norm of the standardized random variables.
Article
In the early 90's, electricity production has moved from state monopolies to competitive markets, with a new ele-ment of risk: the wholesale price uncertainty. Thus, mod-elling electricity-prices together with exogenous variables is crucially needed for plant scheduling, generation asset management and option pricing. Recent literature on em-pirica...

In this work we propose a different approach to the problem of estimating a transfer matrix with data aided, which can be applied to SISO and SIMO channels, either baud-rate or frac-tionally sampled signals. The approach is based on the Em-pirical Likelihood method [1, 2], a flexible semi-parametric estimation method, which can easily integrate in...

This paper presents a new robust estimation scheme for signal processing problems. The empirical likelihood is a recent semi-parametric estimation method [1] which allows to estimate unknown param-eters and to build confidence areas without using a prior model for the PDF: this method uses only information contained in the observed data when we hav...

Full-text available
Empirical likelihood is an estimation method inspired by the classical likelihood method, but without assuming any parametric model for the distribution of the data. The empirical likelihood method can be described as the maximization of the likelihood of a discrete distribution supported by the data. It can be used to build confidence regions, as...

Full-text available
We review some recent extensions of the so-called generalized empirical likelihood method, when the Kullback distance is replaced by some general convex divergence. We propose to use, instead of empirical likelihood, some regularized form or quasi-empirical likelihood method, corresponding to a convex combination of Kullback and χ2 discrepancies. W...

In this paper, we generalize the results obtained with the Kullback distance (corresponding to empirical likelihood) and Cressie-Read metrics (generalized empirical likelihood) to general -discrepancies, for some convex functions satisfying a few regularity properties. In particular, we introduce a new Bartlett correctable family of empirical discr...
