Olivier Giraud


I am a political scientist, research director at the CNRS.

My principal interests lie in the field of comparative policy analysis (vocational training, labour market policies and employment norms, care policies).

Recently, I was guest researcher at the college re:work (2012-2013) (BMBF, Humboldt Universität Berlin), at the Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin (2007-2009) and fellow at the Centre Marc Bloch, CNRS in Berlin (2006-2010). I am now working at the LISE-CNRS, at the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers in Paris.

I taught at the Universities of Lausanne, Paris-Dauphine, Picardie Jules Verne, Free University in Berlin and Milano Bicocca. I am a co-director of the research network 6 of the French Sociology Association (ASF) : Protection sociale, politiques sociales et solidarités (RT6), a member of the Conseil de recherche et prospective of the Uniopss and of the Conseil scientifique of the CNSA.

I currently work on the following issues:

  1. -comparative analysis of gender regimes in Europe

  2. -local regimes of care for the aged in Europe

  3. -transformation of the employment norms in the context of globalization

  4. -globalization and comparative analysis

  5. -rescaling the welfare state in Europe
