Disparities in Europe: Trends and implications at different geographical scales


The challenges brought by aging and depopulation in Europe have put demography at the top of the EU agenda, with a strong emphasis on assessing the disparities that exist between countries, but also, and above all within countries, at territorial level, which is highly relevant for economic vitality and social cohesion among others. In this presentation, we will show the trends in population size and age structure at different geographical scales, from municipalities to regions in the EU, and how these are shaped by the mobility of people over the life course. We will link these findings about the disparities to the drivers and impacts of these trends on the regional labor markets and economies, access to services, digital divides, and climate change.
