In his treatise on Metaphysics, Aristotle, a pioneer in the studying life expectancy and demography more generally, pointed out that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This idea also applies to Population Europe, the network of Europe’s leading demographic research centres: In joining forces, the partner institutes are able to address a much broader regional and thematic scope in their policy dialogue activities, publications and other outreach materials than a single institute could do alone.

POLICY BRIEF ON THE FUTURE OF WORK Rapid and deep technological changes driven by the digital revolution, together with globalisation and demographic changes, are creating many new job opportunities but also new challenges.

How can demography as an “interdiscipline” be better promoted? Should we put stronger emphasis on building our own corpus of population theory, as suggested by leading researchers? [...]

Foreign workers are usually found on either the bottom or top end of the Swiss labour market, while Swiss natives hold the intermediate level positions. At the same time, the distribution of the foreign work force seems to be influenced by the origin of the workers. By means of the 1980 Census and the 2010-2011 Structural Survey, Elena Vidal-Coso and Enrique Ortega-Rivera compare the career-related disadvantages of Italian and Spanish immigrants between 1976 and 1980, and 2006 and 2011.
