Eric Kaufmann

Eric Kaufmann is organizing the following conference:

Political Demography: Ethnic, National and Religious Dimensions
29-30 September, 2006, at London School of Economics

Sponsored by the Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism (ASEN), in association with the Economic and Social Research Council
(ESRC) and British Academy

Demography - chiefly in the form of international migration and differential fertility rates - has enormous socio-political implications and is soaring in importance. Below replacement fertility in developed countries, increased global migration and differential fertility rates between groups within states are altering population balances. In addition, growing state reflexivity and democratisation - censuses, border controls and elections - magnify demographic changes.

In addition to three renowned scholars in the field, there will be seventeen panels with fifty papers addressing a range of issues involving demography, politics, ethnicity, religion, and nationalism. We welcome conference attendance from all interested members of the community.

Plenary Speakers:
Jack Goldstone - George Mason University
Michael Hout - University of California Berkeley
Monica Duffy Toft - Harvard University
