More about the conference

Since the 1960's, fertility and family behaviour in Europe has entered a new phase of radical changes, reflecting and contributing to new developments in social organisation, beliefs, attitudes, economic progress and medical knowledge. The fertility decline, which followed the baby boom of the 1960's has ceased or even reversed in some Northern European Countries by the late 1980s. In Southern, and more recently in Eastern Europe the fertility decline has progressed and has lead to hitherto unprecedented low levels of fertility. At the same time, the processes of union and family formation have been transformed and Europe may witness a new divergence in demographic patterns. This conference will address the current empirical and theoretical knowledge about these recent developments in fertility and family behaviour in modern societies.

Topics will include:

  • relation of family and fertility changes to demographic changes in the area of migration and mortality
  • development of methods for measuring demographic changes in low fertility contexts
  • possible social, economic or biological "limits" of fertility decline
  • separation of parenthood from partnerships

Moreover, the conference will foster the development of new theoretical explanations for fertility and family behaviour in modern societies, including a focus on the biosocial and sexual aspects of fertility behaviour.

Paper proposals that fit within the theme of the conference are welcomed. Particularly interesting would be papers that focus on demographic changes in Southern and Eastern Europe. A selection of the best proposals will be added to the programme. Papers not presented for oral presentation can be presented and discussed in poster sessions. Young scientists, including graduate students, who would like to present a paper or poster are specifically invited to apply.
