Organized by CEPED – CICRED – INED

Hosted by the Asian MetaCentre for Population and Sustainable Development Analysis


The conference will be held in Singapore at the Asian Metacentre for Population and Sustainable Development Analysis on 5-7 December 2005. Centers and scholars working on population are invited to communicate to the conference secretariat a proposal on this theme. All centers and scholars working on population are invited to communicate to the conference secretariat a proposition of communication on this theme. The conference is organized by CEPED, CICRED and INED in order to promote South-South and North-South exchange with support from the Asian MetaCentre for Population and Sustainable Development Analysis, Singapore. Paper topics relating to all social and demographic aspects of female deficits in Asia are welcome.

Please note that due to this high level of interest, and the fact that our budget will be limited, funding will be mostly limited to participants from research centers located in developing countries and we anticipate that the selection of papers will be very competitive. No more than one participant per research centers may be sponsored.
