European Studies of Population (ESPO) aims at disseminating population research with special relevance for Europe.

ESPO is multidisciplinary in character and includes both formal demographic analyses, as well as studies of the social, economic and other determinants and impacts of population trends. International comparison is of prime interest to ESPO and both contemporary and historical perspectives may be applied. ESPO is open to methodological work and theoretical studies, as well as to studies that focus on the social and policy implications of demographic trends. The series may include monographs and edited volumes.

ESPO is published under the auspices of EAPS by Springer Publishers.
