RC04 Sociology of Education (host committee)

Session Organizer: David KONSTANTINOVSKIY, Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia

Youth need a successful self-realization; economy needs a skilled manpower; the sphere of education is connected with these two components, but also has its own interests. The relationships between these three participants of the interaction are formed differently in different contexts. 
A specific situation can determine to what extent the sphere of education is focused on the interests of young people and to what extent on the employers’ needs. The state can influence the educational sphere through funding and other incentives. 
Does the labor market have opportunities to affect the educational sphere? Employers may be active, but may not be ready to participate in the functioning of educational organizations. In addition, they may not be interested in influencing young people and may not have tools for it. 
What are young people’s intentions concerning their educational and professional careers? How these intentions are related to the actual situation on the education and labor market and how to some abstractions? It is important whether the labor market signals reach young people or there is significant distortions in communication channels. 
In different social conditions, the interaction between the labor market, the educational sphere and youth creates various problems and conflicts. A successful solution is vital for the development of the whole society. What can be done to increase youth opportunities, improve education and ensure the economy needs? 
Participants are invited to discuss the experience of different countries and prospects of situation development in the future world.
