La présentation fait état des premières analyses réalisées dans le cadre du programme d’observation et d’évaluation du dispositif « CP dédoublés », conduit par la direction de l’évaluation, de la prospective et de la performance (DEPP) en lien avec des équipes de recherche. Les constats présentés sont à considérer comme de premiers résultats, qui seront complétés et affinés, à travers l’approfondissement des analyses statistiques et la mobilisation de données complémentaires. Le dispositif d’observation et d’évaluation est construit dans une perspective longitudinale et s’inscrit dans la durée. Les premières analyses s’appuient sur des analyses de données recueillies auprès des directeurs d’école, des enseignants et des élèves lors de l’année scolaire 2017‐2018. La prise en compte de ces différentes dimensions rend ce dispositif unique dans le champ des études sur l’effet de la réduction de la taille des classes. Ces premières analyses seront ainsi complétées, au fur et à mesure, dans les années à venir. En comparant les évolutions des compétences d’élèves de REP+ scolarisés dans des classes de taille réduite et celles d’élèves de REP de profil social proche, mais n’ayant pas bénéficié de la mesure, ces premières analyses mettent en évidence un effet significatif de la réduction de la taille des classes.

Presentation

In this paper, we study the effect of both self employment and precarious employment on health in the UK.  We match individual-level information on health and sociodemographic characteristics from the Understanding Society Longitudinal Study (2009-2016), with commuting area-level data on employment characteristics as well Google search data on the activity level in the gig economy. To estimate the causal effect of self and precarious employment on health, we use Google search queries on terms associated with gig economy employment in an area to instrument for the probability that an individual will be employed in a gig-type job (a proxy for gig economy demand). In addition we use travel to work area level information on the self and temporary employment to instrument for the probability that  an individual will be self or precariously employed. Both are strong predictors of self and temporary employment. Our findings suggest that, contrary to some previous studies, self employment and temporary employment are positively related with mental health. This is true both when looking only at those working as well as when comparing to all individuals of employment age. Further, examining sub-components of behaviour associated with mental health (sleep, physical activity, medication, smoking, drinking) we find a consistent pattern of improvements in these drivers of mental health for those who are self or temporary employed.

Dans les sociétés libérales, où le principe de non-discrimination s’est imposé comme un référent consensuel, il est le plus souvent illégitime et illégal de considérer l’identité sexuée et racialisée comme une caractéristique productive dans le monde du travail. La prise en compte de ces qualités incorporées – que l’on peut qualifier de réalisme identitaire, en s’inspirant d’un concept forgé par J. Skrentny (2013) –  a souvent été mise au jour en bas de l’échelle des emplois.

Cet article explore les logiques de réalisme identitaire au sein d’emplois qualifiés, à partir d’une enquête comparative auprès de « managers de la diversité » travaillant au siège de grandes entreprises dans les régions de New York et de Paris. L’enquête montre que, dans les deux pays, l’identité de sexe et racialisée des responsables diversité opère comme un attribut qualifiant ou déqualifiant : aux États-Unis comme en France, le corps de ces professionnels signifie l’arrangement légitime entre race, genre et diversité, au-delà d’une rhétorique commune célébrant une infinité de « différences » individuelles, et au-delà du discours méritocratique qui disqualifie la prise en compte des identités de groupe dans la définition de la compétence.

Mais cet attribut joue de manière inverse dans les deux pays : alors qu’aux États-Unis l’identité minoritaire (de race, mais aussi de sexe) apparaît comme un attribut central du bon diversity officer, en France au contraire c’est l’identité majoritaire (là encore de race et de sexe) qui constitue une ressource dans l’exercice de la fonction de responsable diversité. Le contraste mis au jour par cette analyse comparative confirme l’importance de placer les corps des travailleurs et travailleuses au cœur de l’analyse des dispositifs gestionnaires, au-delà  de l’analyse des discours qui les légitiment et de leurs usages pratiques.

« Construire les politiques de lutte contre la pauvreté urbaine à partir du terrain ? »

De l’analyse de la mise en œuvre des politiques publiques à l’identification des processus d’insertion sociale et économique


Paris – Sciences Po, 4 et 5 juillet 2019 

 

Dans le cadre du projet ANR MARG’IN, les unités mixtes de recherche CITERES, CEE, MIGRINTER organisent, en collaboration avec l’Ecole Urbaine de Sciences Po et le LIEPP, un colloque international les 4 et 5 juillet 2019 à Paris, sur la mise en œuvre des politiques contre la pauvreté dans les villes européennes et leurs couronnes périurbaines. 

 

Organisé dans le cadre du programme de recherche MARG-IN, qui est financé par l’Agence nationale de la recherche, ce colloque entend contribuer aux débats en cours sur la lutte contre la pauvreté en identifiant, à partir de l’examen des jeux d’acteurs liés à la mise en œuvre des politiques, les processus d’insertion sociale et économique qui pourraient servir de base à la construction de nouveaux dispositifs en phase avec la demande sociale et avec les réalités locales. Il se déroulera à Paris les 4 et 5 juillet 2019. Pendant ces deux jours, les chercheurs seront invités à échanger leurs points de vue avec les acteurs institutionnels, les acteurs de terrain (professionnels de l’action sociale et militants associatifs) et les personnes en situation précaire. Ces échanges serviront de base à l’écriture d’un texte commun jetant les bases d’une approche de la lutte contre la pauvreté « par le bas », et à large diffusion.

Rising inequality has become such a widespread concern in rich countries primarily because it is seen to be associated with long-term stagnation in living standards for ordinary working households, compounded by the Great Recession. This talk presents the findings of a program of research on inequality and performance in improving ordinary living standards over recent decades across the wealthy nations of OECD, drawing on two recent OUP books, Inequality and Inclusive Growth in Rich Countries: Shared Challenges and Contrasting Fortunes and Generating Prosperity for Working Families in Rich Countries. It highlights the wide variation in performance in generating real income growth around and below the middle, and relates this to what happened to income inequality and economic growth. The divergence between growth in GDP and median incomes is probed. The explanatory power of widely-used country clusters/models with respect to growth in middle and lower incomes is assessed. Analysis of the underlying causal processes highlights the complexity of the impacts of globalization and technological change on wages and household incomes. By looking across this broad canvas, the findings have important lessons for how best to pursue the quest for inclusive growth and prosperity, not least in highlighting the dangers inherent in applying lessons from the US experience across the rich countries more generally.

We document how gender differences in commuting distances widen over the lifecycle following a similar pattern as the gender wage gap. We relate these stylized facts to supply side considerations, using a unique administrative dataset where we can match job seekers’ search criteria - reservation wage, maximum commute, working hours, etc - to the precise characteristics of the jobs preceding and following their unemployment spell. We document that, controlling finely for the previous job, unemployed women have a lower reservation wage than men and search for jobs closer to their residence. This translates into women getting lower wages and lower commutes upon reemployment. We observe similar gender gaps in wage and commuting for jobto-job transitions. We then show that females have steeper indifference curves between wage and commute. We find that female workers do not receive less demand from far-away employers, suggesting that most of our stylized facts are supply-side driven. Through the lens a job search model where commuting matters, we estimate that up to 70% of the gender reservation wage gap can be accounted by gender differences in the maximum accepted commute.

Printemps de l'Economie 2019

Travail: un peu, beaucoup, à la folie, pas du tout? March 18 to 21, 2019
  • Actualité Sciences PoActualité Sciences Po

LIEPP is part of the 7th edition of the "Printemps de l'Economie"

The main subject of this new edition is the employment, a essential component of our lives in society. Do digital transitions play a decisive role in generating or not new jobs? Artificial intelligence: what is the place for work? What are the main perspectives for "green" jobs in a climate environment crisis? Does taxation matter too much on work?  How to finance pensions? Are we really trying everything to fight against unemployment?  

These questions and many more will be analysed during this event. Le Printemps de l'Economie is also the opportunity to present the findings of research conducted in this area by our laboratory (LIEPP).

Two sessions are presented by LIEPP:

Tuesday March 19th, 10h30 - 11h30 (location: Bourse du Travail)

« Digitalisation de l’économie et polarisation du marché du travail »

Speakers: Bruno Palier (CNRS, CEE et LIEPP), Camille Peugny (Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines) et Gregory Verdugo (Université Evry Val-d ’Essonne).

This session focuses on the digitization of the economy and the polarization of the labor market. Digitization can be understood as an industrial revolution, a series of technological innovations associated with new practices and new business models. Like any industrial revolution, it goes through a phase of destruction of the existing, before profoundly transforming the world of employment, and developing new sectors of activity and new jobs. The peculiarity of this phase stems from the fact that certains jobs are mainly removed in the industry (in terms of skills or wages) while it allows the creation of high-paying jobs on the one hand (in high tech, high value-added services), and low wages and precarious work (especially in interpersonal services).

Thursday March 21st, 14h00 - 15h15 (location: Mairie du 3ème arrondissement)

« De l’efficacité des politiques d’emploi ? »

Speakers: Clément Carbonnier (Université de Cergy-Pontoise, THEMA, Conseil d’analyse économique et LIEPP), Morgane Laouénan (CNRS, LIEPP), Andreana Khristova (LIEPP) et Bruno Palier (CNRS, CEE et LIEPP).

This session aims to question the effectiveness of employment policies based on research conducted by LIEPP. For several decades, France has actively supported jobs through tax cuts and exemptions from employers' social security contributions.The devices deployed under the policies to promote the services to the person will be analized and in the framework of the tax credit competitiveness employment aiming at improving the competitiveness of the companies. The purpose is to present LIEPP's conclusions about the effectiveness of these policies in creating jobs, and their anti-redistributive effects. It will also examine mechanisms to combat discrimination in hiring and inequalities in access to employment. Finally, an analysis of policies aimed at "activating" the unemployed by encouraging job recovery, training or business creation will be presented.

Thursday March 21st, 17h30-18h45 (location: Amphithéâtre Emile Boutmy, Sciences Po)

« Choisir son temps de travail? »

Speakers: Pierre Cahuc (professor of Economy Sciences Po, director of "Chaire de sécurisation des parcours professionnels, IZA research fellow), Bruno Palier (CNRS, CEE et LIEPP) and Catherine Pinchaut (National Secretary of Cfdt).

After two centuries of reduction of the weekly working time, is it possible to think that this types of reforms can continue? In order to rebuilt an inclusive society, it is necessary to share a dynamic and negotiated working time and to better articulate our individual and and personal time with ours families?  

Accessibility :

It is necessary to complete an online registration to participate in this event. The sessions will take place at Conservatoire National des Arts et des Métiers (CNAM), à la Bourse du Travail, au Ministère de l’Economie et des Finances, à la Mairie du 3ème arrondissement et à l’Amphithéâtre Emile Boutmy à Sciences Po.

New institutions are seldom built from scratch. They are typically born through piecing together already existing institutional building blocks in a creative way. In recent years, an important debate has been launched on the possible construction of a fully-fledged European Social Union (ESU), with a view to enhancing the functional coherence and effectiveness of the economic and monetary union as well as its political legitimacy. What are the existing pieces that could be brought together for this ambitious reform?

The paper argues that the first step should be to systematically link five different ingredients: 1) the EU "social" constitutional principles already enshrined in the Lisbon Treaty; 2) EU social policies and coordination tools in the wide sense which are already existing (from the newly established European Pillar of Social Rights to the European Semester and the Cohesion Funds); 3) the EU "mobility space" upheld by free movement and social security coordination 4) EU-promoted transnational social programs (cross-regional initiatives and cross-national schemes for occupational benefits); 5) national social protection systems, and in particular their "modernization/social investment agenda" as promoted and supported by the EU.

ESU should start as a limited, by recognizable system of separate but interdependent elements, subject (as in the EMU) to common rules and principles and aimed at sustaining/promoting two types of solidarity: a pan-European solidarity between countries and between individual EU citizens centered on supranational institutions and the more traditional forms of national solidarity, centered on "recalibrated" domestic institutions.

I will present one chapter of a forthcoming book called "The Constitution of the Economic System", which analyses the structure of institutions (and among them, Constitutions) and their implications for the economy. In this chapter I discuss, from the standpoint of a Chilean social security system, how likely is and which conditions should be imposed upon participants if the objective is to reconcile the values of social rights with private provision in one subsystem. In order to do so, I will expose what we have termed the "Regime of the public interest" (Atria, Larrain, Benavente, Couso and Joignant, 2013) as a regime suitable for accommodating private provision. We shall discuss in detail public schooling and pensions.

Presentations:

  • Overview of the French social impact investment market by Amélie Artis (University Grenoble Alpes, CNRS, Sciences Po Grenoble, PACTE)

Abstract: At the end of 2017, the French market for social impact investment represents 3 billion euros managed, for a flow of financing committed in the year of 400 million euros. These figures cover initiatives with very different realities, in terms of origin of the resource, financial operators, tool, and beneficiaries of financial flows. The study focuses on describing this ecosystem and comparing it to other international markets. 

  • The role of foundations and endowment funds in social impact investing in France. Investing in the service of the general interest? Approaches and experiments by Gaspard Verdier (Simandef)

Abstract: The French distributive foundations implement their mission of philanthropy by granting grants to works of general interest. While this is not likely to change in the short / medium term, there are prospects for social impact investing in their financial investment business. 

  • « Social Bonds Market : to a new asset class? by Mathilde Pelizzari (Impact Invest Lab)

Abstract: In line with the Green Bonds, social bonds aim to finance or refinance projects whose social objective is identified. Like conventional bonds, they can be issued by governments, local authorities, public or private institutions and traded on the bond market. They have financial characteristics comparable to traditional bonds and provide a social return, making it an attractive financing tool. The market has been nascent since 2017 and tends to grow, provided to engage more financial players. The public authorities can play a structuring role.

Since the decoding of the human genome in 2003, at least 74 companies have emerged to sell genetic ancestry tests directly to the public. Individuals receive a test kit in the mail, send back a DNA sample, and can receive a chart linking direct family lines to particular populations or geographic regions, or analyzing what proportion of their lineage is, for example, European, African, Native American, and Asian – labels that closely mirror contemporary racial categories. An estimated 12 million tests have been sold, and more people were tested in 2017 than in all previous years combined, making it increasingly important to understand the social impacts of ancestry testing. Although social scientists have long asserted that race is socially constructed, many fear that genetic ancestry testing will reinforce an essentialized view of race as purely biological, fixed, and deterministic. Alternatively, some have speculated that the tests may have the opposite effect, by revealing the lack of genetic determination to the social identifications people have long held, and by showing the relatedness of all contemporary groups. To assess these claims, I present findings from the first randomized controlled trial testing the causal effect of genetic ancestry tests on essentialist views of race. Using random-digit dialling, the study recruited a random sample of native-born White Americans, half of whom were randomly assigned to receive admixture and maternal-line ancestry tests. The findings indicate that the impact of the tests on genetic essentialism is moderated by genetic literacy, whereby those who have high knowledge of genetics develop less essentialist views after taking the test. This study concludes that the ancestry tests do have an impact on essentialist views of race yet the direction of the effect hinges on how well the results are understood.

Abstract

The impact of participation in extracurricular activities on academic success has long been studied in the social sciences. This article aims at improving the measurement and understanding of this impact. Based on panel data regression models applied to a panel of French middle school students, it first provides a robust estimation of the impact of extracurricular activities on school outcomes (marks in French and Mathematics) and on a set of cognitive and non-cognitive skills. It finds a positive and significant impact on marks in French and Mathematics and scores on non-cognitive skills tests. No impact is found on cognitive skills. The article then investigates the underlying mechanisms of this impact. Its findings do not reinforce the transfer paradigm, according to which extracurricular activities provide students who participate in them with skills that they can reinvest in school life. Neither does it support the notion that such an impact may primarily be the result of students’ greater connivance with the cultural standards of teachers. Instead, it seems likely that what is mainly at stake in participation in extracurricular activities is families’ unequal capacity for extending the time of school supervision in their children’s free time. Therefore, insofar as the varying participation in these activities is strongly correlated to differences in students’ social and cultural background, participation in extracurricular activities would in itself contribute to reinforcing social inequalities in school achievement.

Depuis plusieurs décennies, la France soutient activement les emplois de services à la personne. Aujourd’hui, le secteur compte 1,2 million de salariés, représentant plus de 5 % de l’emploi total. Malgré ce succès apparent, cette stratégie n’est ni efficace ni juste. Elle crée un faible nombre d’emplois en comparaison de leur coût public. Précaires et mal rémunérés, ces emplois « bas de gamme » contribuent à la polarisation de notre société, ainsi qu’à l’augmentation des inégalités ethniques et de genre. En outre, l’État subventionne des services de confort pour les plus aisés, au détriment des services publics ouverts à tous. C’est ainsi qu’on en revient à une société de domestiques, comme au XIXe siècle, avec de « nouveaux pauvres » au service de « nouveaux riches ». Heureusement, plusieurs pistes existent pour sortir de ce contre-modèle.

Abstract

From the time students enter kindergarten, teachers overestimate the abilities of boys in math, relative to behaviorally and academically matched girls, contributing to a gender gap favoring boys in both math achievement and confidence. Using data from numerous nationally representative studies spanning kindergarten through university level, as well as experimental evidence, I demonstrate how girls and young women face discrimination and bias throughout their academic careers and suggest that a substantial portion of the growth in the male–female math achievement gap is socially constructed. Each of the studies leads to a broader set of considerations about why females are viewed as less intellectually capable than their male peers. The studies also demonstrate that biases can be exhibited and perpetuated by members of negatively stereotyped groups (e.g., female teachers demonstrate greater bias against girls than do male teachers), and raise questions about the root causes of their biases and the long-term effects of being negatively stereotyped oneself. This research also suggests that comparing boys and girls on metrics such as standardized tests and grades may contribute to a false belief that education systems promote the success of females. Together, the studies suggest several implications for research, teacher professional development, and policy.

Senior Researcher at The French Institute for Demographic Studies (INED), Paris

 

 

 

Mathieu Ichou will present his latest book titled Les enfants d’immigrés à l’école. Inégalités scolaires du primaire à l’enseignement supérieur published by Presses Universitaires de France.

Abstract (in French):

En France, près d’un quart des enfants en âge scolaire ont au moins un parent immigré. Or, les qualifications scolaires jouent un rôle essentiel dans la définition du statut social des individus et la constitution des inégalités. En analysant la scolarité des enfants d’immigrés, Mathieu Ichou apporte donc un éclairage sociologique à un enjeu social fondamental. Sur un sujet aussi saturé de discours médiatiques et politiques réducteurs, il propose de dépasser les fausses évidences, grâce à une approche analytique plutôt que normative : ne pas étudier les immigrés uniquement après qu’ils sont entrés sur le territoire national, en ignorant tout de leur histoire antérieure ; ne pas réduire leurs enfants à un groupe homogène, toujours en « échec scolaire » ; ne pas attribuer a priori toutes les difficultés scolaires des enfants à des défaillances familiales, à une culture d’origine incompatible avec l’école ou à une fratrie trop nombreuse. Autant d’impératifs analytiques qui portent leurs fruits et fournissent de nombreux résultats originaux.

Six sessions are planned for one session every two months, each with a thematic component and a transversal component. The thematic section aims to illustrate the contribution of impact assessment in different areas of public policy on specific topics (such as class size in the field of education). Areas covered will include education, housing, employment, health, crime and the environment. The transversal component will address different issues: the evaluation approach and the choice of methods, the scope of evaluation results, the place of impact assessment in the evaluation landscape (including administrative assessments), issues of access to confidential data, dissemination and receipt of impact assessment results and challenges for impact assessment.

For each session, people from various backgrounds (researchers, decision makers, practitioners), working in France or abroad, will intervene to cross the points of view.

This cycle of six seminars is aimed at a wide audience made up of evaluation practitioners, companies, associations, research and study departments of banks and insurance companies, trade union organizations, students, researchers.

According to the sessions, the seminar will be held at France Stratégie, Paris School of Economics or Sciences Po.

New book: "Le prix de la démocratie" by Julia Cagé"

Media coverage

"Le prix de la démocratie"


New book edited by Julia Cagé, co-director of LIEPP's "Evaluation of Democracy" reserach group

Le prix de la démocratieJulia Cagé, Fayard, 2018, 464p.

One person, one voice: democracy is based on a promise of equality that too often comes crashing down on the wall of money. Financing campaigns, donations to political parties, taking control of the media: for decades, the democracy is increasingly captured by private interests.

Based on an unprecedented study of private and public political financing in a dozen countries over more than fifty years, Julia Cagé studies the state of democracy, dissects national models, and narrates attempts - often unsuccessful, but always instructive - regulating the relationship between money and politics.

In the United States, where all the regulation of democracy has been swept away by ideology, the political staff no longer responds to the preferences of the most favored. In France, the state has put in place a system of tax reductions allowing the richest to be reimbursed the bulk of their donations to political parties, while the poorest, they pay full price.

These drifts do not come from a conspicuously orchestrated plot but from our collective lack of involvement. The question of the financing of democracy has never really been raised; that of the representation of the popular classes must be on a more radical mode. To break the impasse, here are proposals that revolutionize the way of thinking politics and innovative reforms for a new democracy.

How Distributional Conflict over In-Kind Benefits Generates Support for Anti-Immigrant Parties

How Distributional Conflict over In-Kind Benefits Generates Support for Anti-Immigrant Parties

with Charlotte Cavaillé (Georgetown University)

[language: English]

 Tuesday September 11th 2018
12:00 - 14:00

Salle Percheron (98, rue de l'Université)

 

What role do economic concerns play in activating support for anti-immigrant parties? Previous research has hypothesized the existence of a welfare channel, in which citizens exposed to a decline in transfers will be more opposed to immigrants. However, evidence is conflicting. This paper makes two contributions. Theoretically, we highlight non-residual, in-kind welfare programs as especially prone to generating distributional conflict between immigrants and natives. Empirically, we leverage exogenous variation in the intensity of this conflict to identify its effect on electoral outcomes. We focus on Austria’s affordable housing program, which benefits a quarter of households. In 2006, a EU directive forced municipalities to open public housing to previously excluded immigrants. As we demonstrate, this reform increased support for anti-immigrant parties in affected municipalities. More broadly, our findings suggest that populist parties may have benefited from the recent confluence of austerity measures and concerns surrounding the congestion of in-kind benefits.

ECPR-SGEU Conference "Contradictions - Whither the Political, Economic and Social Integration of Europe?"

Sciences Po, Paris, June 13th - 15th 2018
  • Shutterstock_Malchev_Map of the EUShutterstock_Malchev_Map of the EU

 

On behalf of the Sciences Po’s Centre for European Studies and Comparative Politics and  Laboratory for the Interdisciplinary Evaluation of Public Policies, convenors of the 9th Conference of SGEU-ECPR, we are delighted to welcome you to participate in this important scientific event. The conference theme is :

Contradictions – Whither the Political, Economic and Social Integration of Europe?

For some years, pundits have said that the European Union has been under stress and showing resilience, undergoing ‘crises’ requiring adaptation. Social scientists are trying to understand how current political tensions and policy contradictions affect the European project now that the ‘permissive consensus’ has come to an end, and the EU post-Lisbon ‘constitutional compromise’ looks fragile.

Scholars have been reflecting on the state of European integration with a diachronic perspective based on empirical work or theoretical endeavours. They shed light on the EU as a set of institutions and policies with elites and interest groups embedded in a wider international context. Analysis of the EU as a source of political cleavage are key to understanding populism, party realignment, territorial tensions in many member states, against the backdrop of inequalities within and across member states.

This conference will address the complex relationship between socioeconomic dynamics and EU developments, to understand the bases of political integration and its potential effects. Are the terms ‘European society’ or ‘European economy’ constructs reflecting an empirical reality and can they be linked to EU policies? In this era of ‘lost illusions’, our Paris meeting will also engage with debates in political, legal and social theory around key concepts including democracy, the rule of law, and legitimacy.

Europe’s political landscapes are in turmoil, and new radical parties challenge the established political order. The process of European integration is more and more contested politically. This panel, based on a recently published book, locates Europe’s contemporary challenges within the longer economic and political trajectories of its “welfare democracies”. Based on the analysis of the specific structures of political competition and voter-party links in different European democracies, it presents a general understanding of the political and economic turmoil of the last decades. The panel provides an analytical framework that links welfare states to party systems, combining recent contributions to the comparative political economy of the welfare state and insights from party and electoral politics. It states three phenomena. First, concerning electoral politics, it identifies a certain homogenization of European party systems, the emergence of a new combination of leftist socio-economic and rightist socio-cultural positions in many parties, and, finally, the different electoral success of the radical right in the north of Europe and of the radical left in the south. Second, it underlines a confluence toward renewed welfare state support among parties and voters. Third, it demonstrates that the Europeanization of political dynamics, combined with incompatible growth models, has created pronounced European cleavages.

Professor of Economic sociology and Comparative political economy at the University of Florence (visiting professor at LIEPP from May 25th to June 22nd, 2018)

"The political economy of growth: skills, innovation and labour regulation in contemporary capitalism"

 

 

Abstract: 

The seminar focuses on pathways of inclusive growth in OECD countries. The first part of the seminar will focus on a comparative analysis of growth models since the beginning of the nineties and emphasizes the importance of productivity and its three key drivers: human capital, innovation and labor market regulation. The second part deals with the logics of action and on policy instruments adopted by public and private actors in each of these three fields in different countries, and on their outcomes in terms of growth and social inclusion. In this part I empasize three main points. First, the study of the relation between productivity and the three above-mentioned drivers shows that it is important to redefine the classical idealtypes of the varieties of capitalism approach: a huge internal variation in liberal, mixed and coordinated market economies emerges when we analyze public and private actions, especially in the fields of innovation and human capital formation. Second, the state - defined not as a single actor but as a constellation of actors that follows different logics, sometimes even in conflict - continues to play an important role not only in terms of regulation but also in the creation of collective goods that directly or indirectly trigger or hinder productivity and growth. This role is characterized by continuity and change: old logics and instruments coexist with new policy tools, and even if new policy goals are emerging the old ones have not disappeared. Third, the state is important, but it is only a part of the complex governance model that regulates human capital formation, innovation and labor market: the role of other public and private actors shall be taken into consideration in order to understand the complexity and the variety of modes of regulation in these fields and their different outcomes in terms of growth and social cohesion. By looking at the interaction among these actors, in which cooperation and conflict coexist, it becomes possible to identify strengths and weaknesses of the different modes of governance and to shed light on some of the reasons behind the trajectories of growth and inclusion in the analyzed countries.

Abstract

We provide a comprehensive analysis of the short- and medium-term effects of gender quotas in candidate lists using evidence from local elections in Spain. In the context of a closed list system with proportional representation, quotas were introduced in 2007 in municipalities with more than 5,000 inhabitants, and were extended in 2011 to municipalities with more than 3,000 inhabitants. Using a Regression Discontinuity Design, we find that quotas increased the share of women in candidate lists by around 8 p.p. and among council members by 4 p.p. However, we do no observe within three rounds of elections any significant variation in voting behavior, the quality of politicians, the probability that women reach powerful positions such as party leader or mayor, or in the size and composition of public finances. Overall, our analysis casts doubts on the effectivity of gender quotas in candidate lists and their capability to empower women.

This workshop aims to stimulate an exchange around several recent research experiments that use experimental or quasi-experimental methods to study inequalities and discriminations. The speakers will bring up the different types of methods used (controlled experimentation, natural experience, testing ...), the institutional and academic context of their mobilization, the difficulties encountered and the solutions provided. The debate will also focus on the contributions of these methodological approaches in understanding the mechanisms of reproduction and transformation of social inequalities as well as their implications in terms of public policies.

Welfare Democracies and Party Politics. 
Explaining Electoral Dynamics in Times of Changing Welfare Capitalism.

New book edited by Bruno Palier (LIEPP's co-director & CEE), 
Philip Manow, and Hanna Schwander

 

Welfare Democracies and Party Politics. Explaining Electoral Dynamics in Times of Changing Welfare Capitalism, Philip Manow, Bruno Palier, and Hanna Schwander (ed.), Oxford University Press, 2018, 352p.

Europe's political landscapes are in turmoil, and new radical parties challenge the established political order. This book locates Europe's contemporary challenges within the longer economic and political trajectories of its 'welfare democracies'. The book argues that it is imperative to understand the specific structures of political competition and voter-party links to make sense of the political and economic turmoil of the last decades. In four distinct European welfare democracies (Nordic, Continental, Southern, and Anglo-Saxon), the political economy, the party system, and the structure of the political space are co-determined in a specific way. Accordingly, different packages of policies and politics and distinct patterns of alignment between core electoral groups and political parties exist in the four welfare democracies and shape the reactions of European welfare democracies to the current turmoil.

This volume provides an analytical framework that links welfare states to party systems, combining recent contributions to the comparative political economy of the welfare state and insights from party and electoral politics. It states three phenomena. First, concerning electoral politics, the book identifies a certain homogenization of European party systems, the emergence of a new combination of leftist socio-economic and rightist socio-cultural positions in many parties, and, finally, the different electoral success of the radical right in the north of Europe and of the radical left in the south. Secondly, the contributions to this book indicate a confluence toward renewed welfare state support among parties and voters. Thirdly it demonstrates that the Europeanization of political dynamics, combined with incompatible growth models, has created pronounced European cleavages.

Résumé: 

La jeunesse diplômée rencontre des difficultés d’entrée dans le monde professionnel. Certes, statistiquement, il ne fait aucun doute que les diplômés sont mieux lotis que les jeunes sans qualifications. Mais, dans les représentations, les problèmes d’emplois des diplômés apparaissent inacceptables : comment comprendre que des jeunes « méritants », à tout le moins du point de vue scolaire, ne trouvent pas leur place sur le marché du travail ? Bac+5 et pas d’emploi décent ? 

Cette conférence décrit l’expérience de la recherche du premier emploi des jeunes diplômés. Elle présentera les grands parcours typiques d’insertion professionnelle. Pour les jeunes issus des formations professionnalisantes, l’insertion professionnelle prend la forme d’une transition douce vers l’emploi. Au contraire, pour la majorité des étudiants provenant de formations de masse, plus académiques et moins finalisées professionnellement, la recherche du premier emploi s’apparente à une conversion identitaire : il s’agit de quitter le statut, voire la personnalité de l’étudiant pour rejoindre les attendus du monde professionnel. Enfin, certains jeunes refusent les voies classiques d’accès à l’emploi, valorisent d’autres sources d’épanouissement que celles proposées par le travail et désirent prolonger le temps de l’expérimentation qu’offre la jeunesse.

Ces différents parcours semblent n’avoir rien en commun, ils parlent a priori de jeunesses différentes, étanches les unes aux autres. En réalité, ils sont tous gouvernés par un principe fort et unique, typique du système de relation formation-emploi français : l’assignation professionnelle. Par-delà la pluralité des expériences des jeunes, dans leurs volontés de conformation à l’idéal d’insertion comme dans leurs refus, il faut lire des réponses à une même nécessité : celle de « se placer ».

Abstract

A new stream of sociological and demographic theory emphasizes individualization as the key process in late modernity. As maintained by Hakim, also women have increasingly become agents of their own biographies, less influenced by the social class and the family. In this study, I intend to contribute to this debate by analysing how, in Italy and Britain, women’s movements between employment and housework are linked to their husband's education and class, and how this link has changed across cohorts. Using discrete-time event-history modelling on the BHPS and ILFI, my findings show that in both countries, if the woman’s educational and labour-market profile is controlled for, the husband’s occupation and education have lost importance. Yet, although based more on ‘her’ than ‘his’ profile, divisions along ’classic’ lines are still evident and not context-free, and they assume different forms in the two countries with distinctive institutional and cultural settings. In ‘liberal’ Britain, women’s labour-market participation responds more to motherhood and class than to education, while in ‘familistic’ Italy education seems more important, which suggests the existence of returns over and above strictly human capital/economic ones. 

Women in Business Chair

Sciences Po launches a new Chair with LIEPP participation, April 11th 2018
  • Actualité Sciences PoActualité Sciences Po

 

SCIENCES PO LAUNCHES THE WOMEN IN BUSINESS CHAIR


Sciences Po Entrepreneurship Centre launched the Women in Business Chair. This new research and teaching chair aims to develop and scientifically evaluate measures to reduce the barriers women face in business careers, whether in terms of access to leadership positions or of starting new business ventures. The chair’s activities will benefit women students who may be discouraged from entrepreneurship, business leaders seeking guidance on effective measures to put in place and public authorities wanting to raise awareness of best practices.

The chair will develop activities in three areas, led by Sciences Po Entrepreneurship Centre and LIEPP:

  • Research: studies in experimental economics, sociology and social psychology focused on developing measures to reduce the obstacles that discourage women from starting a business or, more broadly, from reaching senior management positions.
  • Teaching: using the research findings to create new courses and specific workshops that help women develop essential career skills for a changing labour market.
  • Knowledge dissemination: informing wider society about effective measures to foster women’s entrepreneurship and leadership.

"After several years of research on gender and gender stereotypes, this chair will allow us to take the analysis of possible measures further so that we can propose truly effective solutions for promoting women’s leadership", explained Anne Boring, head of the chair and LIEPP affiliated.

Building on the expertise of LIEPP and PRESAGE and informing universities, business and public authorities

The chair will draw on the unique evaluation expertise developed at Sciences Po’s Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Evaluation of Public Policies (LIEPP), a Labex (laboratory of excellence) established in 2011.

The chair’s research will be part of the LIEPP’s Discrimination and Social Inequalities research group, which aims to contribute to public debate by assessing the extent and evolution of discrimination in France and by analysing the public policy challenges it poses in terms of reducing social inequalities.

The chair’s research programme also builds on gender equality research conducted at Sciences Po, particularly through PRESAGE, an academic and research programme on gender thinking. 

Thanks to this expertise, the chair will be able to produce research outputs that aim to inform universities, businesses and public authorities. The research will focus on evaluating measures to reduce the impact of gender stereotypes and biases that limit women’s career ambitions. The programme will help advance research on the best approaches for fostering women’s entrepreneurial skills (expertise and soft skills). The first policy brief will focus on the issue of women’s public speaking and measures to help women develop their skills in this area.

The Chair receive the support of founding sponsors : CHANEL Foundation, Goldman Sachs and AXA Research Fund.

     "Care Economy: An Outline of a New Research Project"  

 

Abstract:

Care economy refers to the sector of economic activities, both paid and unpaid, related to the provisions of social and material care, including care of children, the elderly and the disabled, health care, education, and as well, financial and other personal services, all of which contribute to nurturing and supporting the present and future populations. While the expansion of the care economy is evident across the OECD world, their forms and modalities vary significantly across regions. In this presentation I show four different forms of care economies – in East Asia, Europe and North America – and ask: 1) why do we see different types of care economies across different regions of the world; and 2) what are the factors/variables that can account for their differences, and how do they contribute to the diverse outcomes. I provide a tentative conceptual approach and methodology to address these research questions, and discuss an opportunity for a potential collaborative international research project.

Abstract

Milan is the first immigrants’ destination in Italy and the cosmopolitan city by excellence in the country. Yet for almost two decades the local government has not demonstrated to be particularly prone to the promotion of urban diversity and recognition of the value brought about by immigrants’ communities; safety policies, rather than integration or multicultural policies have been implemented. An apparent radical change started in 2011 when the left-wing coalition led by Giuliano Pisapia won the local elections. In my presentation I analyse the recent evolution of the administration political discourse on diversity and international immigrants’ presence in the city, with the aim to highlight:
- the extent to which the discourse about diversity has been evolving and whether and how any of such changes translate into actual initiatives and/or in policy implementation; 
- the prevailing narratives (interculturalism, multiculturalism, integration, etc.) and the related representations of immigrants and the city itself. 

Particular attention will be devoted to the initiative called “Forum della Città Mondo”, a permanent assembly gathering representatives from migrant and ethnic associations created along the selection of Milan as the site of the 2015 Universal Exposition.

The aim of this workshop is to facilitate the exchange of ideas between comparative political economists who have recently obtained their PhDs from the LSE, Oxford, and Sciences Po and senior political economists who are either permanently based at or are currently visiting Sciences Po. Professor Bruno Palier and Professor David Rueda will act as general discussants throughout the workshop. 

Comparative political economy is an interdisciplinary field which combines insights from institutional economics, economic sociology, and political science. It seeks to understand how the political context influences national economic policy choices and explain why countries vary in terms of their economic performance. Participants will have an opportunity to participate in the most recent theoretical and empirical debates taking place in the field. 

This workshop is open to Sciences Po staff and research students only. If you are interested in participating, please contact Sonja Avlijas at sonja.avlijas@sciencespo.fr

Abstract

Most distributive theories in political economy understand individuals to be motivated by material self-interest, often approximated by their current positions in the income distribution. It has become increasingly common, however, to also conceptualise material self-interest inter-temporally (as lifetime consumption/income). This approach extends the more direct focus on effects of contemporary relative income (as in Romer 1975 and Meltzer and Richard 1981) and opens the door to arguments about insurance and risk (as in Sinn 1995; Moene and Wallerstein 2003; Iversen and Soskice 2001; Rehm 2009; Mares 2003), and about social mobility and life-cycle profiles (Rueda and Stegmueller 2018; Alesina and Giuliano 2011; Haider and Solon 2006; Benabou and Ok 2001). Distinguishing between redistribution (in the present) and insurance (against something that could happen in the future), however, is empirically challenging. In this paper, we propose that the effects of insurance motivations on support for redistribution are income dependent. We distinguish our argument from other theoretical alternatives and explore its implications through a laboratory experiment designed to separate the influence of redistribution, insurance and altruistic motivations that we conducted through the Nuffield Centre for Experimental Social Sciences (CESS) in the United Kingdom and Chile.

  • Evaluation of police crime reduction strategies
  • Re-entry and rehabilitation interventions
  • Guns (and related policies) and crime
  • Social interactions, networks, and crime
  • Crime and labour markets
  • Economic crises, poverty, inequality and crime

The workshop is organized by the Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Evaluation of Public Policies (LIEPP) at Sciences Po. 

We invite researchers to submit a paper (in PDF) by sending an e-mail to TWECParis2018@gmail.com. The submission deadline is May 1st, 2018. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by June 17th 2018. We will provide hotel accommodation and meals for the presenters. Limited funding will be available to cover travel expenses for paper presenters. 

The 2017 Organizing Committee is:  Roberto Galbiati (Sciences Po Paris, CNRS); Olivier Marie (Erasmus University Rotterdam); Paolo Pinotti (Bocconi University); Giovanni Mastrobuoni (Collegio Carlo Alberto), Aurelie Ouss (University of Pennsylvania), David Abrams (University of Pennsylvania), Emily Owens (University of California, Irvine).

"The democratization of education, its paradox, a plausible
    explanation and its empirical proof"

 


Abstract [FR]:
L’analyse historique d’une éventuelle démocratisation de l’enseignement, c’est-à-dire d’un affaiblissement de l’association statistique intrinsèque entre l’origine sociale des individus et le diplôme le plus élevé qu’ils obtiennent, peut conduire à un paradoxe. Sur des données françaises nombreuses – plus d’un demi-million d’individus – issues de sept enquêtes Emploi, on montre ainsi qu’entre les générations 1920-1922 et 1974-1976, le lien général entre origine sociale et diplôme s’est quelque peu desserré. Pourtant, entre les mêmes générations, si l’on raisonne sur les seuls titulaires du baccalauréat ou d’un diplôme équivalent – ou même sur les seuls titulaires du baccalauréat général – on observe que le lien entre l’origine sociale et l’obtention (ou non) d’un diplôme de l’enseignement supérieur s’est régulièrement renforcé.
Après avoir mis en évidence ce paradoxe, la présentation reviendra précisément sur les énoncés de sociologues de premier plan qui, de part et d’autre de l’Atlantique, en France en 1970 et aux États-Unis en 1981, ont, en des termes très différents, tout à la fois prédit le second élément du paradoxe et en ont aussi fourni, en des termes très précautionneux, la même explication plausible.
La présentation avancera enfin que ces sociologues avaient raison et que l’on peut aujourd’hui en exhiber une preuve empirique à partir du panel d’élèves suivi par l’INED entre 1962 et 1972 et du panel d’élèves suivi par le ministère de l’Éducation nationale entre 1995 et 2006. Elle peut être trouvée dans la comparaison des performances des élèves des différentes classes sociales, au fil des transitions successives au sein du système scolaire et, pour les mêmes transitions, à quatre décennies de distance.

Workshop on Long-term perspectives on parliaments and governments

"Workshop on Long-term perspectives on parliaments and governments"

The workshop is co-organized by LIEPP and the Norwegian Institute in Paris
from March 26th to March 27th 2018 

The conference will be focussed on the notion of long-term trends related to legislatures either by analysing parliaments (or MPs or executive/legislative relations) with a long temporal perspective (from 50 years to 200) or by considering the impact on historical events and choices made in parliament. A major stake of the conference is therefore to assess why and how historical arrangements may impact legislatures decades after having been taken. The institutional and sociological aspects of such long-term trends will be considered with several presentations focussed on European legislatures.

Abstract :

Scholars have long pondered the degree to which institutions and rules impact the type of government that is formed in parliamentary democracies. For example, the presence or absence of a parliamentary investiture vote is said to affect whether minority governments will be formed. We argue that the mere existence of an investiture rule does not necessarily change the likelihood of minority government formation. We demonstrate that real-world investiture rules vary significantly across a number of dimensions and argue that, theoretically, investiture requirements can affect the emergence of a minority government through a transaction costs or a transparency mechanism. Using new data on investiture rules for 32 parliamentary democracies since 1946 we find support for the transparency effect of investiture rules on the likelihood of minority governments: the requirement that governments face an investiture vote only reduces the chances of minority governments when it requires the public and explicit support of an absolute majority of legislators. Parliamentary rules shape government formation, but only when the salient detail of the rules are accounted for. The wider suggestion is that scholars of government formation need to employ more nuanced measures of institutional variation. 

 

ECPR-SGEU Conference "Contradictions - Whither the Political, Economic and Social Integration of Europe?"

Sciences Po, Paris, June 13-15, 2018
  • Actualité Sciences PoActualité Sciences Po

 

LIEPP in association with Centre d’études européennes et de politique comparée (CEE) co-organize the conference of European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) / Standing Group on the European Union (SGEU)  which will be held in Paris at Sciences Po from June 13th to June 15th 2018

The theme of the conference:

Contradictions – Whither the Political, Economic and Social Integration of Europe?

For some years, pundits have said that the European Union has been under stress and showing resilience, undergoing 'crises' requiring adaptation. Social scientists are trying to understand how current political tensions and policy contradictions affect the European project now that the 'permissive consensus' has come to an end, and the EU post-Lisbon 'constitutional compromise' looks fragile.

Scholars have been reflecting on the state of European integration with a diachronic perspective based on empirical work or theoretical endeavours. They shed light on the EU as a set of institutions and policies with elites and interest groups embedded in a wider international context. Analysis of the EU as a source of political cleavage are key to understanding populism, party realignment, territorial tensions in many member states, against the backdrop of inequalities within and across member states.

This conference will address the complex relationship between socioeconomic dynamics and EU developments, to understand the bases of political integration and its potential effects. Are the terms 'European society' or 'European economy' constructs reflecting an empirical reality and can they be linked to EU policies? In this era of 'lost illusions', our Paris meeting will also engage with debates in political, legal and social theory around key concepts including democracy, the rule of law, and legitimacy.

The conference provides space for researchers from various backgrounds – political science, history, sociology, law, anthropology, philosophy, geography, economics – to present and discuss cutting-edge research focused on the pressing questions of European integration. The ECPR's Standing Group on the European Union is committed to methodological pluralism, and encourages dialogue across academic disciplines.
