Looking Back: A Special Report and an Interview about the EPC 2016 in Mainz
With over 500 talks in 123 sessions, the EPC presented an enormous variety of topics that can hardly be documented in their entirety. We therefore focus on selected topics that are receiving a great deal of attention, not only in demographic research. These include the fields of fertility and family, migration, mortality and ageing, and policy implications of the demographic transition. Our goal is to provide an overview of important topics and, ultimately, to convey, at least in these fields, a (brief) impression of the variety of research subjects.
