Although global population is still growing, an ever larger number of regions and countries are experiencing a decline in population size, and the COVID-19 pandemic may have further accelerated the process. 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 from demographic, economic, sociological, political, environmental, and geographical perspectives. 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 for Democracy and Demography
The conference will take place 29.11.-01.12.2021 in full distance mode via Zoom. There is no conference fee. A special issue of the Vienna Yearbook of Population Research will focus on the conference theme, Depopulation. Conference participants will be invited to submit their research to the journal.
