Twentieth-Century Demographic Processes and Social Problems


  • E. Arab-Ogly


In the present era demographic problems exert a growing influence both on the internal policies of individual countries and on international relations in general. They are attracting the ever greater attention of experts, politicians, and the broad public. This is attested to by the very fact that the Third World Population Conference held in Bucharest in 1974, unlike the first two (held in Rome in 1954 and in Belgrade in 1965), was run by the United Nations at the government level and culminated in the adoption of an action plan in this area. A conference scheduled for 1984 will evaluate the results of its fulfillment and the elaboration of future international programs designed to promote the improvement of the extremely acute demographic situation in the world.
