MPIDR at the IUSSP´s International Population Conference 2021

Several researchers of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) present their work at the IUSSP's International Population Conference, which takes place in a virtual manner from December 5 to 10.

The International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP) was founded in Paris, in 1928. The IUSSP promotes the scientific study of populations, encourages exchange between researchers around the world, and stimulates interest in population issues.

The IUSSP International Population Conference is the world’s largest international scientific conference on population and demography.
