This research project proposes an analysis of policies and provision relevant to “active orientation” in the form of three broad subjects:

  • The degree of autonomy of French policies with respect to proactive decisions of the European Commission concerning its orientation;
  • The modifications that these policies and provisions are susceptible to introducing in the network of actors participating in their elaboration and implementation;
  • The way in which these policies and actions influence the representation of studies and institutions of higher education, as well as the choice of the orientation of youth.

In this researh framework, LIEPP has published a Working Paper on the role of education fairs in the access to higher education:
