The Wittgenstein Centre at the PAA 2023

6 APR 2023

The Population Association of America’s annual meeting is a premier conference of demographers and social and health scientists from the United States and abroad. Senior, mid- and early-career demographers present and discuss their research in oral and poster sessions, hear of others’ findings, and network with their peers.

Since PAA’s first conference in 1932, much important research has been presented on topics ranging from migration to reproductive health to race and gender issues. Researchers from the Wittgenstein Centre will present and discuss new research in presentations and poster sessions at this important event. For detailed information to the PAA 2023 please visit the event website.
