The European University Institute’s Forum on Migration, Citizenship and Demography (EUI’s Forum) provides a platform for scientists, policy makers and other professional experts to reflect on migration-related issues in the current context of the mass movements of refugees and migrants, and to explore the global challenges.

This first conference on demography will focus on the links between migration and demography in Europe with a particular emphasis on: population decline and ageing and their consequences for the economy and society; the role of migration in population reproduction; and the tools and policies that address immigration in its relationship with demography.

As leading expert in demography, World Population Program Director Wolfgang Lutz was invited to give a keynote on what we know and what we do not know about the future of the population. The latest set of world population projections was published in 2014 by IIASA's World Population Program (POP) together with the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital (IIASA, VID/ÖAW, WU).
