Demographic aspects of human wellbeing

VODCAST - 11 November 2019 Wolfgang Lutz


World Population Program Director Wolfgang Lutz opened the Wittgenstein Centre (Univ.Vienna, IIASA, VID/ÖAW) conference 2019. The conference was titled "Demographic aspects of human wellbeing" and took place between 11-12 November 2019 in Vienna.

The conference was held in the framework of an ERC Advanced Grant funded project at IIASA led by Wolfgang Lutz that is particularly looking at the demography of sustainable human wellbeing. In this context and with partial funding from this grant the conference brought together researchers from around the world working on different aspect of human wellbeing with a specifically demographic perspective. The aim was to put demography more prominently on the table as a discipline that has much to contribute to the scientific study of human wellbeing, both in terms of its measurement and the analysis of its determinants.
