Population in Central Europe
Past Events / Videos
Public lecture delivered by David Coleman | 14th October 2014

Europe’s population is proportionately diminishing.  European states currently make up twelve per cent of the world’s population, but this is expected to fall to nine percent by 2050.

By the same time more than a third of the population will be over 60 years old. The harsh realities of the continent’s demographics are even more pronounced in Central Europe. In Hungary’s case the birth rate has been falling since the early 70s, an era in which the proportion of the economically active working population has also been falling as the result of improved mortality rates and migration.

These trends and their profound implications were the subject of the lecture given by David Coleman, Professor of Demography at the Department of Social Policy and Intervention, University of Oxford, on the 14th October 2014.
