The proposition that health care can and should be made to function like a "normal" market sector has had great impact on health policy debates in Western nations in the last three/ four decades and the main strategic embodiment of that proposition has been managed competition, which envisions consumers, providers, and payers linked by market forces that are disciplined by firm "pro-competitive" public regulations. Amid vigorous debate, different societies have made different choices about whether and how far to pursue this strategy. The seminar will explore some political considerations that may help to explain why some societies have embraced managed competition fully, others have approached it cautiously and sitill others have found it lacking in appeal.

 

DEFISC - Le coût d'opportunité des politiques d'incitations fiscales en France

Workshop LIEPP - November 18, 2019
  • Actualité Sciences PoActualité Sciences Po

La France s'inscrit dans un mouvement général d'utilisation croissante de l'outil fiscal à des fins de politiques sociales, d'emploi ou de soutien à différents secteurs (culture, environnement...). Certaines mesures modifient le financement de ces secteurs tandis que d'autres utilisent l'outil fiscal comme alternative aux prestations directes. Ces politiques fiscales, en s'appuyant sur les incitations, constituent un instrument d'intervention publique aux propriétés économiques et politiques distinctes d'autres instruments (dépenses directes, réglementation). 

L'analyse du coût d'opportunité des dispositifs d'incitations fiscales sera abordé lors de cette journée d'étude de l'axe politiques socio-fiscales ainsi que leur efficacité pour répondre aux défis sociétaux actuels.

Post-doctorante (octobre 2018 - mars 2020), dans le cadre du projet "LIFETRACK - Life Course Dynamics of Educational Tracking" (NORFACE Network, Programme "Dynamics of Inequality Across the Life-course: structures and processes) dirigé par Carlo Barone. 

 

 

Policy makers are increasingly searching for ways to allow more disadvantaged students to access and complete higher education. The quickly growing (quasi-)experimental literature on policy interventions in higher education provide the opportunity to identify the causal effects of these interventions on disadvantaged students and discuss inequality mechanisms at the last stage of the educational system. The paper reviews 75 studies and rigorously compares more than 200 causal effects of outreach and financial aid interventions on the access and completion rates of disadvantaged students in higher education.

The paper "What works to reduce inequalities in Higher Education ?" finds that outreach policies are broadly effective in increasing access for disadvantaged students when these policies include active counseling or simplify the university application process, but not when they only provide general information on higher education. For financial aid, the paper finds that need-based grants do not systematically increase enrollment rates but only lead to improvements when they provide enough money to cover unmet need and/or include an early commitment during high school. Still, need-based grants quite consistently appear to improve the completion rates of disadvantaged students. In contrast, the evidence indicates that merit-based grants only rarely improve the outcomes of disadvantaged students. Finally, interventions combining outreach and financial aid have brought promising results, although more research on these mixed interventions is needed.

In 2015, New York City released the first long-term sustainability plan for a large city that explicitly incorporated the three pillars of sustainable development: economy, equity and environment. The same year, the UN adopted Agenda 2030, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). This session will discuss the extensive, collaborative and inventive process New York followed internally, as well as how both processes worked together and influenced each other. There will also be a brief examination of how other cities have begun using the SDGs voluntarily to frame and support their own objectives.
