Regarding President Trump’s Executive Order on Immigration Restrictions

The Annual Meeting of the Population Association of America is open to participants interested in population research from any part of the world.  President Trump’s January 27, 2017 Executive Order to temporarily suspend U.S. entry visas to citizens of seven countries does not reflect the inclusionary values of the PAA research community or its mission.

PAA believes the intellectual and scientific understanding of population issues is enriched by global contributions and perspectives.  PAA will work with those from affected countries intending to participate in the Annual Meeting from April 27-29, 2017 in Chicago, IL to facilitate their visa application process.  We are also working to find an effective way for those impacted to participate in their sessions remotely should that be necessary. Please contact Danielle Staudt, Executive Director via email ( for further details.
