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.
