TEPSA is happy to present its new policy brief “What we know that we don’t know: globalisation, demographic balances and security issues” written by Teresa Rodrigues (Senior Researcher at the Portuguese Institute of International Relations (IPRI) and Associate Professor at Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal).
Declining population volumes, aged demographic structures, and the rise of migration rate dependency label today’s European reality. Fears associated to those changes risk to become part of an endless crisis for Europe’s future and its identity. However, changes must be assumed as challenges, not threats. Knowing Europe’s demographic dynamics can act as a relevant tool to guarantee a better knowledge of security balances and sustainable policies.
