Broken Arms – Population & Policy Compact 05/2013
In the last decade, Europe’s armed forces have been increasingly shaped by an extended role set, in which worldwide responsibilities are added to the traditional tasks aimed at the security and integrity of national territory. Afghanistan, Mali and Iraq are only some examples of such peacekeeping and nation-building missions. But how will these newly assumed responsibilities be affected by population ageing? This rarely considered connection between demographic change and security is explored in the new issue of Population & Policy Compact.

Riding the Population Wave: Myths are of no avail in meeting the demographic challenge
‘Do not focus on inevitable changes in the demographic age structure but invest in education and the population’s cognitive abilities’ – this is one of the key messages of the new issue of the policy brief “Population and Policy Compact”. Axel Börsch-Supan, Agnieszka Chłoń-Domińczak, and Vegard Skirbekk, leading scientists of the Population Europe network, explain that the investment in human capital is essential to compensate the effects of population ageing and keep economic prosperity. Life-long learning activities, especially targeting older age groups and individuals with lower educational attainment, are needed to increase the productivity of tomorrow’s shrinking and ageing workforce.

Recent Research Results at a glance: Demographic Insights on Women& Work
Career, children and combining the two is a big enough problem for most women. Yet for demographers it is no more then the tip of the iceberg: In the ageing and shrinking European population of the near future, more female labour-force-participation will be needed to further shore up the declining workforce. At the same time women are expected to look after their children, and also increasingly care for elderly family members. Therefore policy-makers should try harder to help people resolving work-family conflicts, says a study from the University of Stockholm, one of the partners of Population Europe. The study compares work and wellbeing of families in Europe. Find a short summary and other recent research results at a glance in the latest issue of “Demographic Insights”.

International Women’s Day 2012: the real Challenge of Working Mums
Career, children and combining the two is a big enough problem for most women. But for demographers it is no more then the tip of the iceberg. In the ageing and shrinking European population of the near future women will have to shore up the declining workforce. And yet they will still carry the bulk of care responsibilities, for children as well as for elderly family members. These unpaid activities are likely to have negative side-effects on women’s old-age income – unless we start adapting our pension systems now. Demographic Experts of the Population Europe network provide suggestions and background information.
