Fair Access to Higher Education: Global Perspectives. Edited by Anna Mountford-Zimdars, Daniel Sabbagh, and David Post

students

The University of Chicago Press, coming January 2015, 288 p. 

What does “fairness” mean internationally in terms of access to higher education? Increased competition for places in elite universities has prompted a worldwide discussion regarding the fairness of student admission policies. Despite budget cuts from governments—and increasing costs for students—competition is fierce at the most prestigious institutions. Universities, already under stress, face a challenge in balancing institutional research goals, meeting individual aspirations for upward social mobility, and promoting the democratic ideal of equal opportunity. Fair Access to Higher Education addresses this challenge from a broad, transnational perspective...

Fair Access to Higher Education addresses this challenge from a broad, transnational perspective. The chapters in this volume contribute to our thinking and reflection on policy developments and also offer new empirical findings about patterns of advantage and disadvantage in higher education access. Bringing together insights drawn from a variety of fields, including philosophy, linguistics, social psychology, sociology, and public policy, the book sheds light on how “fairness” in university admissions has been articulated worldwide.

Emerging Capitalism in Central Europe and Southeast Asia. A Comparison of Political Economies, by François Bafoil
The book examines the emergence of different forms of capitalism in Central-Eastern states in Europe and Mekong states within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). All of them (but Thailand) have historically disappeared from the regional maps for long periods of time due to colonial or imperial rule.

Karachi. Ordered Disorder and the Struggle for the City, by Laurent Gayer
Since the mid-1980s, Karachi has endured endemic political conflict and criminal violence, which revolve around control of the city and its resources (votes, land and bhatta — ‘protection’ money). These struggles for the city have become ethnicised. In the process, Karachi, often referred to as a ‘Pakistan in miniature’, has become increasingly fragmented, socially as well as territorially.

The Transformational Effects of the Oil and Gas Strategy of the Kurdistan Regional Government of Iraq, by Gareth Stansfield
An entity — or entities — existing within and across the boundaries of sovereign states established in the aftermath of World War I, Kurdistan, or the ‘Kurdistans’ of Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran, have rarely engaged in actions and activities that may be considered to be ‘transformational’ in terms of how they would impact upon the broader milieu of Middle Eastern political and economics lives.

Séminaire doctoral Chine du CERI

 

Responsables scientifiques : Françoise Mengin et Jean-Louis Rocca

 

Lieu de débat et d’analyse du monde chinois contemporain, ce séminaire a pour vocation de diffuser la recherche des doctorants et de la soumettre à la critique constructive. Deux types de séminaires sont proposés : une présentation par un doctorant de son travail en cours (projet de recherche, état d’avancement, un ou plusieurs chapitres de sa thèse) ; des retours sur des parcours doctoraux qui peuvent aider les étudiants dans l’élaboration de leur problématique ou la poursuite de leur travail d’enquête. Il s’adresse aux doctorants et post-doctorants, de Sciences Po ou de toute autre institution, travaillant sur la Chine, mais aussi à des étudiants dont le sujet peut éclairer ou tirer parti de problématiques développées à partir du terrain chinois.

 

Ce séminaire se propose ainsi de décloisonner les études chinoises en articulant l’approche area studies avec des approches plus disciplinaires. La méthodologie générale qui est privilégiée est celle de la sociologie historique comparée du politique afin d’appréhender les trajectoires du monde chinois dans leur complexité sans pour autant préjuger d’une quelconque « altérité chinoise ».
