Hear from prominent members of the British Society for Population Studies (BSPS) on local population change and policy challenges in the era of ‘levelling up’, followed by an open policy forum for questions from attendees, ending with a networking reception.
Join us for this policy forum event to reflect and celebrate 50 years of the British Society for Population Studies (BSPS). We will discuss local population change and policy challenges in the era of ‘levelling up’. The event will also disseminate knowledge on complex local population variation and the value of data, provide an opportunity for discussion between cross-sector experts, and create a lasting message about the value of the BSPS and population and demography studies.
