The Prague Process webinar ‘Demography and migration in the Prague Process region’ with Professor Ronald Skeldon, University of Sussex and Maastricht University, will take place on 30 September 2021 at 10:30 CET.

The webinar will focus on one of the widely recognized global processes: the decline of human populations. Rapid population growth accompanied development during the second half of the 20th century. Demographic decline or the potential for decline will underlie development over the first half of the 21st century. This webinar and the accompanying Policy Brief will draw attention to some of the inherent tensions created by this process and specifically its linkages with migration, both internal and international. The webinar will flag up the overall demographic trends across the Prague Process countries, identify differences amongst them, and highlight policy issues that will need to be addressed, particularly in terms of migration policies.
