Population-Relevant Policies in Europe Wiesbaden (Germany), 25-30 October 1993 This conference was organized by the Bundesinstitut für Bevölkerungsforschung (BiB) under the auspices of EAPS. The conference convened some 50 scholars from all over Europe to discuss three types of policies which concern population dynamics: those (more or less) directly related to population (pronatalist, family, health, immigration policies), those unrelated but relevant to population (labourmarket, education, emancipation policies, pension schemes etc.), and those policies adjusting to demographic change (reforms in view of population ageing, integration of immigrants, environment and health). A report was published in the EAPS-newsletter (1994, 1).
