23 Nov 2016 UK-Japan Seminar on the Politics and Practices of ‘Low Fertility and Ageing Population’ in Post-War Japan

28 January 2017, 9am-5.30pm, Whitworth Hall, University of Manchester

But, what exactly does ‘low fertility and ageing population’ mean in practice? What are the politics behind the policies of ‘low fertility and ageing population’?
