This research pillar is made up of three fields of inquiry:

  • The current transformation of the educational field and educational policies, taking into account the growing influence of social actors formerly outside of the educational system (grandes écoles, companies, local authorities). The center’s researchers use scientific knowledge and new instruments for mobilizing and assessing social actors.

  • The dynamics that national and local policies implement in the relationships between schools – at a similar or different level – or within schools between school management, educational professionals and users.

  • The individual and collective effects of policies and ways of organizing educational systems, from two perspectives: instrumental (the value of educational certificates in terms of labor market integration and social mobility) and social (impact on social cohesion – more difficult to assess).
