With the world’s population officially surpassing seven billion, this institute addressed the crucial and interlinked issues of population and development, particularly as they affect people in the Global South. What are the most significant population issues in the 21st century? How do population dynamics and the policies designed to address them contribute to or detract from equitable development? How can theories and methods in the social sciences contribute to understanding the relation-ship between population and development, and how can this scholarship contribute to better policies and programs? Participants engaged with cutting-edge theory, innovative and tested research methods, and first-rate scholarship upon which to build their own research programs.
