Call for Papers for the Wittgenstein Centre Conference 2021 on “The causes and consequences of depopulation”, 29 Nov. to 01 Dec. 2021
Although global population is still growing, an ever-larger number of regions and countries are experiencing a decline in population size, and the COVID-19 pandemic may have further accelerated the process. Undoubtedly, depopulation poses many challenges. In the public and policy discourse, negative views are often emphasized but may population decline also open up opportunities?
The Wittgenstein Centre Conference 2021 aims to bring together researchers from around the world working on population decline and its consequences from demographic, economic, sociological, political, environmental, and geographical perspectives.
The conference will take place from 29 November to 1 December 2021 in full distance mode via Zoom.
Deadline for submission: 15 June 2021
