World Demographic & Ageing Forum


The World Demographic & Ageing (WDA) Forum brings together experts concerned with ageing, population dynamics, trends, migration, health, finance, natural resources, innovation, as well as business leaders and nongovernmental actors from around the world. Leading academics from a range of disciplines – demography, political science, life science, economics, medicine, sociology – further contribute to the very special mix which makes the WDA Forum as interdisciplinary and international as possible.

Fellows of the ERSTE Foundation Fellowship for Social Research take part in special panels and discussions relating demographic changes to migration issues.

The Forum takes place from 27 to 30 August 2012 at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland.
