|Description:||2nd RGS Doctoral Conference in Economics: Europe in Transition - Demographic Change and Sustainable Development|
|Location:||Essen, University of Duisburg-Essen, Campus Essen, Germany|
|Subject:||The core of the Conference discusses various dimensions of Demographic Change and Sustainable Development in Europe from different perspectives, country-specific experiences and theoretical as well as empirical approaches. This hopes to contribute in pushing the frontier of knowledge and to foster the bridge between research and practice that is seen vital to successful reform processes. Demographic change is expected to forcefully determine the scope of activities in the economy, politics and society during the next decades. Analyses and predictions of its extent and the subsequent effects on the economy and society are therefore indispensable if concepts of sustainable development are to be considered. European integration is a unique development as it opens effective courses of action not realizable at the national level. The Conference in general, however, is open to all fields of economics (including econometrics). The range of topics in the field of demographic change includes labor market, education and social security systems, income distribution and redistribution, health economics, finance as well as domestic and international migration. The topic field of sustainable development in particular includes economics of environmental resources, industrial organization and public finance. A reference to the process of European integration is preferred. [gemäß den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]|
