Profession, Market and Organization: How is Academia Regulated?


This chapter discusses the respective influence of market forces, professional regulations and organisational rules on academic labour markets and work. Labour markets are understood in terms of recruitment procedures, processes allocating individuals to positions and devices organising career paths. Academic work refers to the contents and management of day-to-day activities achieved by faculty members. It is important to note that all aspects of academic work will be considered in this chapter, although the different components of academic activities are frequently studied independently: the sociology and anthropology of science focus on research, while the science of education analyses teaching and pedagogical tasks. Following some earlier works (Bertrand 1993; Schimank 1995), the three main dimensions of academic work — research, teaching and administrative responsibilities and tasks — will be taken into account.
