29 October - 4 November 2017 - CPC is delighted to be part of the 28th International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP) International Population Conference taking place in Cape Town, South Africa.
This conference is a major international event drawing over 2,000 scientists, policy makers and practitioners in the global population community to meet and address issues of common concern. The Conference takes place once every four years, providing a unique forum for population experts to take stock of recent research on population trends and issues and to debate possible actions and policy responses to the challenges posed by population phenomena.
This year many CPC researchers including our Directors Professor Jane Falkingham and Professor Maria Evandrou will be travelling to Cape Town International Convention Centre in South Africa to present their research in scientific sessions, share papers and giveaways on our exhibition stand, and also provide visitors with an opportunity to 'meet the researcher'.
Sessions will cover a wide range of topics including international migration, sexual and reproductive health, poverty and inequality, population and environment interactions, the consequences of population ageing and issues related to children and youth, education, the labour force, and gender and human rights.
The preliminary Scientific Programme is available here. Further information about our sessions will be available soon.
Please register your place here, we look forward to meeting you there!
