Although global population is still growing, an ever larger number of regions and countries are experiencing a decline in population size. Undoubtedly, depopulation poses many challenges from economic, social, political, and strategic perspectives. In the public and policy discourse, negative views are often emphasised but may population decline also open up opportunities? This conference aims to bring together researchers from around the world working on population decline and its consequences.
Next to a debate session hosted by the UNFPA we are happy to announce as keynote speakers:
- David Bloom, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
- Josh Goldstein, University of California
- Anne Goujon, European Commission Joint Research Centre, Knowledge Centre on Migration and Demography
- Dubravka Šuica, Vice President of the European Commission and Commissioner for Democracy and Demography
Kindly spread the information within your organization/networks.
We are looking forward to welcoming you at the WIC Conference 2021 on Depopulation.
