Contracts in Academic Sphere
The book introduces the reader to the current state of the theory of contracts and its application to the academic jobs market. It is based on theoretical works that study academic contracts using a traditional contract theory, as well as works which analyze several national education systems and their typical contracts. The book contains translated articles, which in many cases have already become classics, as well as articles and reviews written by Russian authors. These authors examine the specifics of the contracts concluded with the teachers of domestic universities, putting the situation in Russia in the overall global context.
This book is intended for students in economics, sociology of education, students of training programs in educational administration (such as management and staff of universities), and researchers working on the internals of academic markets. It may also interest a wider group of readers who are concerned by problems of educational policy and the functioning of academic markets in different countries.
