Project: DemoNet [concluded]

Demography Network of the European Observatory on the Social Situation and Demography

The primary task of the Demography Network was to monitor social and demographic trends in the European Union from a comparative perspective, to provide policy-relevant analysis of these trends, their determinants and implications and to monitor key policy-relevant research findings. Demographic and socioeconomic trends and policy impacts were monitored in the framework of the Social Situation Observatory of the European Commission which aims to inform the social policy debate in the European Union. The Demography Network was led by NIDI and further consisted of the Institut National d’Etudes Démographiques (INED, Paris), the Vienna Institute for Demography (VID, Vienna) and the Rostock Center for the Study of Demographic Change (RCDC, Rostock) a partnership of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research and the University of Rostock.

NIDI involvement in the EU Social Situation Observatory started in 2005 when NIDI was the lead organisation of an international consortium of economic research institutes. As of 2009 the Demography Network was renewed with a stronger focus on interdisciplinary population expertise. The DemoNet work programme was established yearly in consultation with the European Commission (DG EMPL) and included monitoring studies (statistical portraits), research notes and policy briefs on topical issues as well as the organization of an annual policy seminar. In 2010 NIDI was engaged in updating the Statistical Portraits on “Population Growth in Europe and its Regions”, “International Migration” and “Population Diversity”. Also various contributions to the 2010 Demography Report of the European Commission were made such as an overview of indicators relevant to study the impact of the crisis on the readiness of Member States to tackle demographic challenges. Also a study on cross-border connectedness of Europeans was done including the construction of an index on so-called New Euopeans. For this study data were used from a special Eurobarometer survey that was prepared in collaboration with DemoNet.
