Demography and the Coronavirus Pandemic: What have we learned so far and where do we go from here?
Event Review of the High-Level Expert Meeting
On 9 November 2020, Population Europe hosted a High-Level Expert Meeting to discuss what the demographic community has learned thus far about the COVID-19 pandemic and where they go from here. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, it will be important that demographers make a greater effort to communicate their research findings to influence policy measures addressing the impacts of the pandemic. Researchers also need to be more vocal in combating misinformation about the virus and conveying the non-health implications of this pandemic on society.
