Speaker: Hugo Harari-Kermadec, IDHES, ENS Paris-Saclay.
Zoom Webinar proposed by the Institut de Microbiologie de Marseille
Oct 16, 2020 11:30 AM Paris
The French higher education system is seen has divided between elitist Grandes ecoles and an open access public system of universities. Recent evolutions are reshaping a few selected universities to merge with Grandes ecoles to enter the global market for higher education and research symbolized by the Shanghai ranking. The law on research funding (LPR) currently discussed in the Senate is about to complete this transformation and concentrate the public resources on a few world class universities with advantaged students populations.
Hugo Harari-Kermadec is an associate professor in economics at ENS Paris-Saclay – 14th at the Shanghai Ranking. He is the coordinator of a interdisciplinary research group on higher education (acides.hypotheses.org) and author of “Le classement de Shanghai. L’Université marchandisée“. He has been invited to a hearing by a parlementary group (France insoumise) and by the French National Institution for Human Rights these last weeks.
