The primary goal of this programme is to develop students’ skills in applying multi-disciplinary analytic approaches to population development and resource allocation issues, essential for public administration in numerous sectors. The programme is for individuals with different backgrounds who want to understand the ways in which changes in development and population influence each other. A strong theoretical background and the history of population development issues are provided together with up-to-date approaches to analyzing and projecting population structure and needs for resources. Based on this knowledge, population policy and key demographic challenges (that arose in the second half of the 20th century, and persist in the 21st) are discussed.
