Title of the paper : " Physical Disability and Labor Market Discrimination: Evidence from a Field Experiment" (with Marion Goussé, Guy Lacroix, and Steeve Marchand)

We investigate the determinants and extent of labor market discrimination toward people with physical disabilities using a large scale field experiment. Applications were randomly sent to 1477 private firms advertising open positions. We find that average callback rates of non-disabled and disabled applicants are respectively 14.4% and 7.2%. We find this differential does not result from accessibility constraints related to firm infrastructures. We also find that mentioning eligibility to a government subsidy to cover the cost of workplace adaptation does not increase callback rates. Finally, we estimate that a lower bound of the proportion of discriminating firms is 49.7%.

Solidarity with Fariba Adelkhah

  • Actualité Sciences PoActualité Sciences Po

We were shocked to learn of the arrest in Iran of our colleague Fariba Adelkhah and her detention for apparently several weeks, with no possibility of contact with the French authorities.

Fariba Adelkhah, a research professor at Sciences Po’s Center for International Research (CERI), is an anthropologist and a specialist in Iranian society. She has published numerous books, notably on the question of modernity (Being Modern in Iran, Columbia University Press, 2004). She has also worked on the topic of public space in Afghanistan. Her current research focuses on the Shia clerical institution and she was, for this purpose, carrying out field work in Qom.

The importance and originality of Fariba Adelkhah's works have been acclaimed internationally. We are privileged to have such a distinguished scholar in our academic community at Sciences Po. Her arrest and prolonged detention constitute an infringement of basic human rights and of academic freedom.

We wish to convey to Fariba and her family our warmest support and our strong hope for her quick release.

You will find on the CERI website a list of some of Fariba Adelkhah's publications
