Population Change in Brazil: contemporary perspectives

Coordenado por Daniel Joseph Hogan (Org)

The Population Studies Center (Núcleo de Estudos de População - NEPO) of the State University of Campinas has dedicated two decades of intensive work to inter disciplinary research and the consolidation of training programs in the fields of Demography and Population Studies. With the conviction that distinctions such as basic vs. applied science, research vs. extension, or classroom vs. the real world laboratory are false dichotomies which only serve to reinforce ivory tower academism or ad hoc, incoherent social policies, NEPO has sought to construct a "concerned demography" with a rigorous theoretical and methodological base. NEPO has always understood the analysis of the social, economic, cultural and political determinants and consequences of demographic phenomena as an integral part of population science. In the context of recent historical changes in basic demographic parameters and of major cultural changes, NEPO has sought to identify, understand and explain socio-demographic transformations. The obvious impacts for social policy highlighted the importance of permanent dialog with government agencies at all levels and with NGOs.
