Population and Economic Development

Economic and Political Studies (EPShttp://www.tandfonline.com/REPS), an ESCI and Scopus listed journal hosted by Renmin University of China and published by Taylor & Francis Group, calls for papers for a Special Issue on “Population and Economic Development”. EPS wins the award of “The Highest International Impact Academic Journal of China” (Top 5%) granted by the CNKI in 2021. Its 2020 CiteScore is 1.6, and the CiteScore Best Quartile is Q2.

One of the most significant features in the current world population is the increase in the percentage of older persons. According to a report of the United Nations, the share of older persons in the global population is expected to increase from 9.3% in 2020 to 16.0% in 2050. Women comprise a majority of the older persons, especially at advanced ages, and are more likely to live alone at older ages. Many countries have not been prepared to deal with the rapid changes in the population structure. There have been debates on public policies related to these changes. A better understanding is needed to advance human development economically and socially under the changing population structure. To join this effort, Economic and Political Studies invites contributions to a new Special Issue on “Population and Economic Development”. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Labor market and policies under the new population structure
  • Living arrangements of older persons
  • Gender differences and gender equality
  • Wellbeing of different generations
  • Retirement and pension reform
  • Implications of technological development for the older persons
  • Population structure and sustainable development
  • Migration
