The Politics And The Resurgence Of Population Policies

The 10th IWHM is particularly keen on unearthing the agenda of governments across the globe to ‘control’ segments of their population.

The Meeting hopes to cover new ground by examining the following questions:

  • What is the overt and covert agenda of donor agencies/ countries with respect to population policies of poorer countries?
  • How do ‘demographic anxieties’ of below – replacement level population growth of rich countries translate into selective immigration and eugenic policies?
  • What are the gendered health implications of ageing, specifically in countries that have no security and protective measures?
  • How do population control policies impact upon the discourse around citizenship and nationhood?
