A Panel on Demographic Impact on Economic Development
as part of the 4th Annual International Conference on Demography and Population Studies
12-15 June 2017, Athens, Greece
Sponsored by the Athens Journal of Social Sciences
The Economics Unit of ATINER will hold A Panel on Demographic Impact on Economic Development as part of the 4th Annual International Conference on Demography and Population Studies, 12-15 June 2017, Athens, Greece sponsored by the Athens Journal of Social Sciences.
Demographic change is dramatically transforming most European societies: the ratio of young to old and of the gainfully employed to pensioners is shifting in favour of older persons. Hence, in the coming decades, society will be faced with a substantial macroeconomic structural transformation affecting all of the important markets: the labour market will lack young workers, the product markets will have to adjust to structurally changed consumer demands and on the capital market, savings behaviour and the demand for productive investments will be changing. The panel focuses on presentations analysing the links between demography and economic development and growth.
The aim of the panel is to bring together academics and researchers of all areas of demographic change, demographic transition, population development, Europe, economic growth, macroeconomics, labour economics, financial markets, real estate economics and other related areas. You may participate as presenter of one paper, chair or/and organizer of a session, or observer.
Fee structure information is available on https://www.atiner.gr/fees.
Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A Greek night of entertainment with dinner, a special one-day cruise to selected Greek islands, an archaeological tour of Athens and a one-day visit to Delphi. Details of the social program are available here.

The association was established in 1995 as an independent world association of Academics and Researchers. Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.
The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER. Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).
Academically, the Association is organized into seven Divisions and 37 Units. Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.
