Annual Conference in Dresden 2020

11 – 13 March 2020

CALL FOR PAPERS

In collaboration with the Center for Demography and Diversity at the Technische Universität Dresden, the Estonian Demographic Association, the Hungarian Demographic Research Institute, the Czech Society for Demography and the Committee on Demographic Studies of the Polish Academy of Sciences

The fall of the Berlin Wall was followed by thorough and rapid changes that affected all layers of society. Welfare state policies were fundamentally reformed and labour markets deeply restructured, leading to rapidly growing economic opportunities but also uncertainties among the population. Alongside this development, demographic behaviour has changed profoundly in the aftermath of the collapse of the formerly socialist societies.

Almost 30 years after German reunification, it is time to revisit these research questions. Together with the Center for Demography and Diversity at the TU Dresden, the Estonian Demographic Association, the Hungarian Demographic Research Institute, the Czech Society for Demography and the Committee on Demographic Studies of the Polish Academy of Sciences, the German Society for Demography invites scholars to submit their work on “Demography in Central and Eastern Europe” to this annual conference. We invite contributions that address any of the themes covered by the Working Groups of the DGD. These are:

  • Convergence or divergence? Data and methods to compare demographic developments in Europe (Central and Eastern Europe vs. “Western Europe”?)
  • Demographic and societal developments in Central and Eastern Europe
  • Family and fertility in Central and Eastern Europe: trends, determinants and policy implications
  • Health, mortality and morbidity in Central and Eastern Europe since 1990
  • Migration in Europe since 1990
  • Partnership formation and dissolution in Central and Eastern Europe
  • Regional aspects of demographic change in Germany. Reflections on the German reunification process

Venue & Time: The conference will take place at the TU Dresden from 11-13 March 2020.

Abstracts:Abstracts (max. 300 words) can be uploaded using the form below.

Deadline for submissions is 15 December 2019.
