The Population Association of America’s annual meeting is a premier conference of demographers and social and health scientists from the United States and abroad.  Here senior, mid- and early-career demographers are afforded the opportunity to present their research in oral and poster sessions, hear of others’ findings, and network with their peers. Since PAA’s first conference in 1930, much important research has been presented on topics ranging from migration to sexual reproductive health to race and gender issues. [...]

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. In particular, these transformations are contributing to the rise in non-standard forms of employment – selfemployment, temporary work, and ‘independent contracting’.  [...]
Demography is a discipline which is somehow fixed in a Procrustean bed: At many universities, it is subsumed into other academic subjects (such as sociology, economics, geography), thus often exposed to risks of budget cuts and staff shortages; while on the other side, the often small group of demographers in a department is stretched to cover a broad range of population developments. 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? [...]
