EPC 1991

The European Population Conference 1991 (EPC 1991) was jointly organized by the European Association for Population Studies (EAPS) and the International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP) in collaboration with the Institut National d' Etudes Démographiques (INED).

EPC 1995 convened in the Palais des Congres in Paris from 21-25 October 1995.

The conference was centered around two main themes. The first theme concerned East/West differentials and their impacts on demographic behaviour and trends, most notably concerning recent changes in Eastern Europe. The second theme focused on the links between Europe and developing countires, especially those bordering the Mediterranean basin. In addition to these themes a wide variety of classical demographic subjects were treatd in simultaneous sessions. The scientific program consisted of 4 Plenary sessions and 24 simultaneous sessions.

The conference was attended by around 500 participants with a large representation from Central and Eastern Europe.
