The conventional wisdom about the shifting balances of world power usually ignores demographic trends. When experts on geopolitics do consider demography, they usually conclude that population growth is a liability. In this provocative new edited collection on Population Decline and the Remaking of Great Power Politics, the distinguished contributors contend that a key challenge to global stability stems increasingly from the demographic transitions in key world powers. In the coming decades, the effects of diverging population trends in the U.S., Europe, Japan, India, and China will likely increase transatlantic tensions, and destabilize Asian security. In tomorrow’s world, the danger is not that there will be too many people being born, but that there will be too few. Join a panel of expert contributors to this collection as they review their findings and discuss the interactions between population declines, world security, and great power politics.
