Population and Policy: Establishing a new integrative research approach
Bevölkerung und Politik (James Vaupel)
MPI für demografische Forschung, Rostock
SummaryPopulation ageing, low fertility and increasing disparities of family forms and life course patterns in Europe have put the interdependencies between politics and demography at the centre of public debate. Studies of the newly founded Laboratory of Population and Policy / PoL at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) in Rostock show that demographic change may have a lasting effect on political systems both on the national and the European level.
