Project description : 

The law of 5 September 2018 “For the freedom to choose one's professional future" encourage regional actors to design their own guidance policies and to develop specific instruments to implement them. The ORIREG project aims at analyzing the objectives pursued by regional guidance policies and at examining their enactment, reception and effects with regard to the diversity of policy contexts and beneficiaries. The central hypothesis is that regional actors shape their guidance policies with a view to socialize young people to the market: while promoting the freedom of each individual to 'choose his or her future', their action is particularly aimed at ensuring that young people behave as market actors and take greater account of economic expectations and constraints with regard to their future employability when making their higher education choices. Relying on research conducted in political science, sociology as well as information and communication sciences, the project is based on the in-depth case study of the Ile-de-France region, and in particular of two instruments of its guidance policy: the ORIANE digital platform, the “team for success” program.
