ORBi Open Repository and Bibliography (266.005 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. Older men’s labor force participation in Belgium

    Jousten, Alain; Lefebvre, Mathieu
    We provide an overview of the institutional framework in Belgium that is of relevance for labor market participation and retirement decision at older ages. We then describe key labor market indicators using data from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) over the period 1983-2013 and also present trends in participation in (early-) retirement routes. Next, we explore how the types of jobs in the country have changed over time, both in terms of their “quality” and the “quantity” of work involved.

  2. Spousal and survivor benefits in option value models of retirement: an application to Belgium

    Jousten, Alain; Lefebvre, Mathieu
    We study retirement incentives with augmented option value model à la Stock and Wise (1990). We propose methodological extensions to better reflect the respective incentives faced by singles and couples. Our results show that a more comprehensive modelling of couples’ incentives leads to very different patterns of retirement incentives – particularly for women. We apply the new indicators to data from the Survey of Health, Ageing and retirement in Europe (SHARE) in Belgium and find two key results. First, contrary to several previous studies, we obtain a positive signed income effects. Second, we find very different retirement incentives for men...

  5. 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...

  8. Patterns of administrative integration in the European Union: a cross-country empirical analysis of political intentions to reform national public administrations (1997-2011)

    Esposito, Giovanni; Gaeta, Giuseppe Lucio; Trasciani, Giorgia
    In the aftermath of the worst financial and economic crisis in generations, the modernization of public administrations of the EU’s Member States (MSs) is among the structural reforms recommended by the European Commission to relaunch growth in the European economy. This type of reforms has a longstanding tradition in the MSs as they sharply intensified during the 1990s following the paradigm of New Public Management (NPM). Indeed, by backing NPM-style reforms, the European Commission has fostered convergence between the administrative systems of the MSs based on a soft strategy of integration where, instead of establishing binding pan-European rules enforced directly...

  9. The European Public Sectors in The Age of Managerialism: a cross-country empirical study reconstructing the political history of public administrations in Europe during the XX century

    Esposito, Giovanni; Gaeta, Giuseppe Lucio
    During the XX century European administrative systems have undergone a profound process of managerial revolution during which private sector managerial tools and principles have spread across both central and local governments in many countries. As many scholars have associated this process of change with the raise and diffusion of a managerialist ideology, this paper empirically investigates the electoral propaganda that since 1950s has supported the diffusion of managerialist values across the national administrative systems of the European countries. On the basis of a longitudinal study of the electoral programs released by the European parties since 1950s, this research provides evidence-based...

  12. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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...

  18. 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...
