The programme of the Wittgenstein Centre Conference 2021 on “The causes and consequences of depopulation”, taking place online from 29 Nov. to 1. Dec 2021, is now online and the online registration open.


Please find all information on the conference website.


Although global population is still growing, an ever larger number of regions and countries are experiencing a decline in population size. Undoubtedly, depopulation poses many challenges from economic, social, political, and strategic perspectives. In the public and policy discourse, negative views are often emphasised but may population decline also open up opportunities? This conference aims to bring together researchers from around the world working on population decline and its consequences.
Next to a debate session hosted by the UNFPA we are happy to announce as keynote speakers:

  • David Bloom, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
  • Josh Goldstein, University of California
  • Anne Goujon, European Commission Joint Research Centre, Knowledge Centre on Migration and Demography
  • Dubravka Šuica, , Vice President of the European Commission and Commissioner for Democracy and Demography
