Fachkonferenz

Demographic change and its consequences for the regions in the EU

The conference is organised by the European Office of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in co-operation with the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS).

Details

The effects of democratic change – an ageing population, shrinkage of population

and migration – affect an increasing number of regions and communities within the

EU in different ways. It has consequences on the economic, social, educational and

infrastructural sphere. Concepts to tackle the problem vary.

What are the consequences of demographic change for the regions in Europe? What

are the appropriate political means to manage and adjust to the changes? To what

extent should and can the European Union engage in tackling the problem?
