Lecture 6: “Demographic disparities in Europe: trends and implications at different geographical scales”
Presenter: Anne Goujon, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis

Abstract: The challenges of aging and depopulation in Europe have brought demography to the top of the EU's agenda, which emphasizes the assessment of disparities between countries, and above all within each country, at the territorial level. In this presentation, I will show trends in total population and age structures at different geographical scales, from municipalities to EU regions, and how the mobility of people shapes them. I will parallel these observations on the disparities with other drivers and trends in labor markets and regional economies, access to services, the digital divide, and political attitudes toward climate change
