Extrait de la présentation en ligne :

« Demographic transition is a worldwide process with a high heterogeneity according to the wealth of nations, socioeconomic status, cultural background, human and social capital, and so on. Moving to the South, in Mumbai, India, the IUSSP Panel on Historical Demography proposes a walk from the present to the past through an exploration of individual and family histories. Indeed, the demography of developing countries was and still remains the demography of growing masses of populations. Nevertheless, during the last decades new approaches have emerged using individual longitudinal data, which take into account living contexts. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers to explain the recent history of demographic research in the South, the conditions in which new forms of data collection at micro level have appeared, their development and appropriation at a national/regional level, as well as the heuristic challenges in analysis and cross-cultural comparisons. Last but not least, the aim is also to show how these data change our understanding of the demographic transitions. The main focus will be on Asian and African countries but researchers who are working on other regions are welcome. »
