Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course aims to provide insights into contemporary population dynamics and relate them to societal issues such as economic and cultural development, revolutions, environmental, and policy issues. The course covers three main areas: First, it addresses population issues, such as fertility and family dynamics, aging, (im)migration, and other features of changing population structures from a comparative perspective. Second, it presents theories explaining the causes of population development, highlighting in particular issues of economic, cultural, social, and institutional changes; and third, it discusses the consequences of population development for social, economic, environmental, and political development.
