Scientific knowledge is vital for guiding political decision making. On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, the Federal Institute for Population Research (BiB) will host a conference to discuss frontiers in policy relevant population research.
The conference will be organised around three strands that reflect key themes in population research: family and fertility, migration and mobility, and mortality. We welcome submissions of abstracts of 300-500 words to these thematic strands via the conference webpage: www.bib.bund.de/50th-anniversary The call is open for quantitative research, innovative methodological approaches, critical reflections, and theory development. Submissions covering the link between education and population trends, which is a new key focus of the BiB’s research, are particularly welcome.
Strand 1: 3 Years of FReDA: Families and Partnerships in Germany and Europe
Strand 2: Internal Mobility and International Migration Across the Life Course
Strand 3: Mortality Trends and Future Prospects for Longevity in Times of Great Uncertainty
Submission deadline: 25 November 2022
