How Generations and Gender shape demographic change : towards policies based on better knowledge

Published: May 2009

Since 2000, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) has coordinated the Generations and Gender Programme, which combines data collection with analysis of demographic trends and the roles of different factors that influence them, that of public policy in particular.

To discuss how the results of this region-wide programme can be used in developing policy responses to demographic change, UNECE organized the Conference on How Generations and Gender Shape Demographic Change (Geneva, 14–16 May 2008). This forum involved both policymakers and researchers and covered issues such as intergenerational relations, gender equality, living conditions of older persons, low fertility, reconciliation of work and family life, living conditions of families with children and integration of young people in society.

This volume contains the keynote papers and a summary of contributions to the Conference as well as the conceptual background note and the Conference report. It aims to disseminate the Conference proceedings to a wider audience, thereby inspiring broader debate.


The Report is available in  ENG as a whole (1.7 MB, 179 pages) or by chapter.
