Poster Session: Addressing Population Change through Sound Policy to Build a Better Future

Tuesday, 12 July 2016: 10:45-12:15
Location: Arcade Courtyard (Main Building)
RC41 Sociology of Population (host committee)

Language: English

We invite papers covering all aspects of population policy and related attempts to manage or modify demographic change. These may involve efforts to accelerate fertility decline or to boost fertility, to improve maternal child health or transitions to adulthood, to reduce mortality and morbidity, to improve the wellbeing of the elderly, secure demographic dividends or alter intergenerational transfers, and to influence migration flows and consequences.
Contributions may refer to any geographical setting. Theoretically informed empirical studies and cross-national comparisons, including efforts to learn from successful or flawed policies, as well as to transfer experiences elsewhere, are encouraged.
