2012-13 Demographic Change and Future Challenges Network

Society in Britain is changing at an ever increasing speed and these social and demographic changes are some of the biggest issues faced by academics and policy makers today. This Network investigates some of the key issues effecting the British population: Pensions and an ageing population, immigration and an increasing population, tensions between multicultural populations, tax and welfare reform, the unequal geographic distribution of public sector employment and unemployment.   Dr Dan Vickers
