23 April 2015 – In this webinar hosted by Population Reference Bureau, Marlene Lee, program director of Academic Research and Relations at PRB, introduced the concept of a demographic dividend. Parfait Eloundou-Enyegue, professor in Development Sociology and Demography at Cornell University, outlined different research approaches to the demographic dividend. Eloundou-Enyegue shared how each approach addresses key criteria, and thus how it is likely to appeal to academic researchers versus practitioners. He presented a new framework for better understanding the range of methodological approaches to this topic using the criteria of the scale of analysis (individual vs. country) and main target audience (academics vs. policymakers).
Their discussion was followed by Q&A.
This webinar was hosted by the Population Reference Bureau, with funding from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
