Christian Imdorf – Research
My previous research has focused on education systems and gendered school-to-work transitions from a comparative perspective, inclusive pathways to higher education, school-to-work transitions in Bulgaria, new organisational forms of vocational and vocationalising education in Switzerland (training networks; specialized middle schools), and the consequences of experiencing job insecurity for labour market integration in Europe.

Scientific Use Files
Several Scientific Use Files have resulted from some of the above-listed projects:
- TREE longitudinal data for Switzerland (2000 – 2014) is available through FORS
Students who wish to specialise in the Sociology of Education are recommended to consider either of these data sets for their Master's thesis.
