Europe’s refugee crisis is neither exclusively European nor limited to refugees, but rather symptomatic of the challenges facing the continent’s wider migration management strategies in an evolving global migration landscape. It is clear Europe’s disparate and often disjointed strategies will have to adapt to many types of movement as the already-thin line between economic migrant and refugee is blurred by climate change. Aging and increasingly globalised competition for talent will further complicate demands on policymakers. [...]
On Wednesday, October 14th 2015 Population Europe held its second webinar of the year. It was the first to be hosted from Brussels, where the Population Europe Information Centre was opened in May. [...]
"Migration is one of the worst predictable elements of the puzzle". An interview with Jakub Bijak (University of Southampton), winner of the Allianz European Demographer Award 2015. Questions: 1. People often think of projections as a “crystal ball” to predict the future. What do you personally find fascinating about forecasts and projections in the field of demography? 2. What are the main reasons that make projecting international migration in Europe so difficult? [...]
An interview with Amparo Gonzalez-Ferrer (Spanish National Research Council (CSIC)) on temporary and permanent migration 1. The media sometimes says that migrants from outside Europe marry a European national in order to obtain citizenship. But all the bi-national couples I know married for love – so what is the truth about sham marriages? 2. I often hear that international migrants, once they have citizenship rights, bring their whole extended family into the country – is that really common? [...]
An interview with Tom Emery (Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute, Erasmus University Rotterdam) on family support. Questions: 1. The media often report about increasing numbers of young adults depending on long-term financial support from their parents. But none of my friends or myself actually receive this kind of support – so, how dependent is this generation on their parents? 2. Who are the “lucky few”? Do they all have wealthy parents or are there any other common characteristics? [...]
An interview with Sergi Vidal (University of Bremen) on mobility. Questions: 1. My husband has been offered a job in another city. Even though this would be a major career step for him, I am a bit worried about my own job prospects. What does research have to say about these things? 2. Is the situation different when couples only move to another city or region but stay in the same country? 3. What other factors can affect the gender balance in a couple when a family changes their place of residence? [...]
An interview with Róbert Gál (Hungarian Demographic Research Institute) on intergenerational transfers and social policies.   Questions: 1. I often worry about the security of my pension and how the younger generations will cope with the financial burdens awaiting them because of the increasing number of older people. Can research tell us how these imbalances will really develop? 2. Pensions and healthcare are big draws on public finances, but older people also complete a lot of unpaid work. Is this accounted for in the statistics at all? [...]
Why 70 is the new 60 - an interview with Annette Baudisch (Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research) on biodemography. Questions: 1. When my grandmother was my age, I perceived her as being much older than I feel now. Is this just a question of perspective, or is being 70 today biologically different from what it used to be? 2. If you look at human ageing in a long-term perspective, what has changed most significantly since the Neanderthals? [...]
