ECSR 1st Thematic Workshop: Demography and Inequality

Dec 08

December 8‐9, 2016 ‐ Wissenschaftsforum Berlin, Germany.


The workshop aims to bring together demographers and sociologist to discuss the relationship between core demographic processes (fertility, migration, mortality & health) and social inequality.

How are current demographic developments in Europe and beyond, including increasing life expectancy, low fertility and rising migration related to social inequalities and their transmission from one generation to the next? How do country‐specific patterns of social mobility and social inequality affect fertility, migration and mortality? Presentations closely linked to the workshop theme are most welcome.


Key‐note speakers:

Prof. Torkild Hovde Lyngstad ‐ University of Oslo

Alyson van Raalte, PhD ‐ Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research


Organizing Committee:

Sarah Carol (University of Cologne, ECSR), Andreas Edel (Population Europe), Anette E. Fasang (Humboldt University & WZB, ECSR), Mikko Myrskyla (MPIDR), Merlin Schaeffer (University of

Cologne, ECSR), André Schmandke (MPIDR), Emanuela Struffolino (WZB, ECSR), Ann Zimmermann (Population Europe).
