Problems and demographic policies in Europe. The Role of Cities
By Gérard-François Dumont (University of Paris 4 Sorbonne)
Demographic changes are often unknown because they are part of long-term logics; Yet the future of European societies is in the civil states of its various countries. In the first part, we must first analyze the general demographic changes, in particular with regard to the natural increase in Europe, and then the changes in the geography of the population linked to changes in urbanization. Knowledge of the facts will then allow us to examine social, economic and territorial consequences.
