ORBi Open Repository and Bibliography (256.427 recursos)

In may 2007, the ULg's Administrative Board (joined in June 2007 by the FUSAGx) decided to create an institutional repository and defined a strong institutional self-archiving policy to increase the visibility, accessibility and impact of the University's publications (Board's decision). This decision led to the official launch, in November 2008, of the ORBi platform including both the Academic Bibliography and the Institutional Repository of the Wallonia-Europe University Academy.

  1. La gouvernance et le financement de l’enseignement supérieur: une approche microéconomique

    Jacqmin, Julien
    Cet article examine le fonctionnement de l’enseignement supérieur via une approche microéconomique. Il offre une synthèse des travaux menés lors de ma thèse de doctorat qui s’intéresse aux problèmes de financement et de gouvernance auxquels font face les établissements de ce secteur. Premièrement, le lien entre le financement public du secteur et l’émergence de certains types d’institution est étudié. Ensuite, un modèle mettant en exergue le rôle de la composition du conseil d’administration est présenté. La dernière partie porte sur les conséquences d’une dérégulation des frais d’inscription. En conclusion, quelques aspects de l’enseignement supérieur en Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles sont présentés à...

  2. Old‐Age Employment and Hours of Work Trends: Empirical Analysis for Four European Countries

    Jousten, Alain; Perelman, Sergio; Flawinne, Xavier; Aliaj, Arjeta; Shi, Lin
    For the last two decades, the increase of employment among cohorts of individuals aged 50+ has been a policy objective on the European employment agenda. The present paper takes stock of the situation as observed in Belgium over the time period 1997-2011. First, we provide analysis on the evolution of older workers’ employment in Belgium and its neighboring countries Germany, France and the Netherlands using the EU Labour Force Survey. Second, we characterize the different employment and hours of work patterns for different age sub‐groups (50‐54, 55‐59, 60‐64) and provide evidence on their respective evolution. The results show that employment rates among older workers started to catch‐up with...

  6. Work Capacity and Longer Working Lives in Belgium

    Jousten, Alain; Lefebvre, Mathieu
    We explore the link between health indicators and employment rates of the population aged 55 or more. Our focus lies on work capacity as a key determinant of employment. Using cohort mortality information as a proxy for overall health outcomes, we establish a substantial untapped work capacity in the population 55+. Similar results are obtained when relying on individual-level objective and subjective health and socioeconomic parameters as predictors.

  10. The role of market-oriented institutions in the deployment of renewable energies: evidences from Europe

    Jacqmin, Julien
    This paper investigates the link between economic freedom and the production of energy using renewable sources, with a specific focus on European countries. Using a dynamic panel approach, we find that this relationship is positive and significant. The results of our instrumental variable approach indicate further the causal channel between economic freedom and the deployment of renewable energies. Looking at the subcomponents of the economic freedom index, we find that long term price stability and freedom to trade boost the production of renewable energies. However, the importance given to markets, rather than governments, in the economy has no significant impact.

  11. Does sector-specific experience matter? The case of European higher education ministers

    Jacqmin, Julien; Lefebvre, Mathieu
    This paper looks at the relationship between higher education ministers and the performance of the sector that they govern. Using an original panel dataset with the characteristics of European higher education ministers, we find that having a past experience in the sector leads to a higher level of performance, as measured by ranking data. Making a parallel with the literature about the impact of education on the educated, we discuss potential explanations behind the impact of this on-the-job learning experience. As we find that this characteristic has no impact on the spendings of the sector, we argue that this academic...

  12. An economic appraisal of MOOC platforms: business models and impacts on higher education

    belleflamme, paul; Jacqmin, Julien
    We start by using various economic and pedagogical concepts to understand the specificities of MOOC (Massive Online Open Courses) platforms. We then discuss how the private provision of MOOCs, seen as pure public goods, can be sustained. Based on the theory of multisided platforms, we analyse five ways to monetize the MOOC business. Our conclusion is that the most sustainable approach is what we call the ‘subcontractor model’, flavored by touches of the other four models. We then claim that MOOC platforms can play a key transformative role in the higher education sector by making teaching practices evolve, rather than by replacing incumbent...

  16. Tiers Secteur et transition énergétique : le cas des parcs éoliens coopératifs au Danemark et en Belgique

    Bauwens, Thomas
    Le degré de développement du secteur des coopératives d’énergie renouvelable varie énormément à travers l’Europe. Alors que le modèle coopératif est solidement établi dans certains pays, il demeure marginal dans d’autres. Le présent exposé compare deux pays qui se distinguent clairement à cet égard : le Danemark et la Belgique. Le Danemark est un pionnier de l’énergie éolienne. En outre, son système énergétique est caractérisé par une décentralisation avancée et une présence importante de coopératives. La Belgique, quant à elle, présente un secteur coopératif beaucoup moins développé, mais au potentiel de croissance prometteur. Ces différences résultent de plusieurs facteurs économiques,...

  19. Social Security and Early Retirement in an Overlapping-Generations Growth Model

    Michel, Philippe; Pestieau, Pierre
    This paper explains why workers retire earlier, and earlier at the same time as society becomes more and more indebted through increasing pay-as-you- go pension liabilities. To do so, we extend the standard two-overlapping- generations growth model to allow for endogenous labor participation in the later period of life. We show that the rate of participation declines as the size of social security system increases. We also show that mandatory early retirement many be socially desirable in case of underaccumulation.
