Why are French people so unhappy?

Friday, 5 February 2016

Why are French people relatively unhappy, despite their high standard of living? That is the question discussed by Gaël Brulé in his PhD dissertation, which he will defend at Erasmus University of Rotterdam on Thursday, 11 February 2016. Brulé’s study shows that the low French happiness rates are due to the top-down hierarchy that characterises French society. This hierarchy can be observed in the top-down one-way lane that is the French education system, as well as in the ‘power distance’ that affects professional relations in French workplaces.
