Network for Integrated European Population Studies (NIEPS), Final Report, EUR 21529

Project ID: HPSE-CT-1999-00005
Funded under: FP5-HUMAN POTENTIAL

Abstract

The general and main objective of the Network for Integrated Population Studies (NIEPS) was to create an all-European platform of national population institutes in Europe that would promote a dialogue and foster research cooperation on policy relevant interactive domains of population and family dynamics on the one hand and socio-economic processes on the other. Three interconnected key structural demographic changes were addressed:
- Gender relations, family-building and patterns of work;
- Ageing, intergenerational solidarity and age-specific vulnerabilities;
- Demographic and cultural specificity and integration of migrants.
The activities of the Network were implemented through six thematic workshops and three technical meetings. The thematic workshops undertook a retrospective and comparative analysis of demographic trends and policy actions, and prospectively examined alternative strategies to improve policies by identifying best practices and proposed research strategies and instruments which will enable future innovative and transnational comparisons of data and policy impact analysis. The intermediate technical meeting between the two workshops of each theme provided an in-depth critical evaluation of theoretical frameworks and research instruments currently used in the given domain and delivered outlines of new frameworks for future comparative research.
