DE DOMINGO SOLER, Carlos; JACOME, Mónica Naveda; RODRIGUEZ PROANO, Marco Antonio  y  MUNOZ PUMAGUALLE, María Gabriela. Youth, academy and employment. Analysis of a disconnection. Podium [online]. 2020, n.37, pp.129-146. ISSN 2588-0969.

In the Ecuadorian collective-imaginary, the idea that in order to achieve a competitive work development it is essential to pursue University studies prevails. The objective of this work is to carry out a theoretical approach to the current Academy-Labor relationship in Ecuador, taking the year 2019 as the frame. To do this, it starts from an interdisciplinary, statistical and sociological approach, while a quantitative and qualitative-interpretive methodology of official statistics and in-depth interview -with thematic structure- are used. As conclusion, the existence of a disconnection between the Academy and the productive sectors is sustained -which especially harms que segment of young people who have not yet managed to get involved in the labor field-, endangering the achievement of the United Nations 8th SDG by Ecuador, because of, according to the latest official measurements, the youth unemployment rate reaches 9% and only 35% of young people with higher degrees have adequate jobs.
