FEATURED AUTHOR

James Lachaud is a Post-doctoral Fellow at the University of Toronto, where he conducts population-based studies related to social determinants of health and mortality. Dr. Lachaud received his  Ph.D. in demography from the Université de Montréal in 2015. His multidisciplinary research focuses on population and inequalities, with an emphasis on health, human capital and gender. In particular, he examines educational inequalities in the context of the demographic transition in Burkina Faso, population health, suicide and violent deaths in Canada, and socioeconomic inequalities and reproductive health in Haiti. His publications have appeared in journals such as Demographic Research, Death Studies, and Population Review. Previously, Dr. Lachaud was a Lecturer at the Université de Montréal and also served as an invited associate professor at the Institute of Science, Technology and Advanced Studies in Haiti.

 

CALL FOR PAPERS

Population Review is seeking quantitative research papers on the Third Demographic Transition (TDT). As originally discussed by Professor David Coleman in 2006, the TDT is underpinned by the assumption that population mobility, particularly migration, alters the ethnic/race composition of a population in developed countries, resulting in positive and negative socioeconomic consequences.  In 2016, Professor Aris Ananta found that a similar pattern materialized in developing countries (e.g. Indonesia).

This call for papers seeks high-quality contributions on the TDT as it applies to both developed and developing countries. Papers may include a topic within a specific country, a collection of countries or an entire geographical region. Submissions accepted under peer-review will be compiled into a Special Collection, which will be accessible online at www.populationreview.com.

The Special Collection will be edited by three guest editors:

1) Professor Aris Ananta, Faculty of Economics and Business, Universitas Indonesia, Indonesia (arisananta@gmail.com);

2) Professor David Coleman, Emeritus Professor of Demography and Associate Fellow, Department of Social Policy and Intervention, Oxford University (david.coleman@spi.ox.ac.uk); and

3) Professor Farhat Yusuf, Menzies Centre for Health Policy, Sydney School of Public Health, the University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia (farhat.yusuf@sydney.edu.au) and Emeritus Professor, Faculty of Business and Economics, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia (farhat.yusuf@mq.edu.au).

Aris Ananta, an economist and demographer, has published extensively on ethnicity in Indonesia. His publications can be found in numerous influential journals, including Asean Economic Bulletin, Asian and Pacific Migration Journal, Asian Population Studies, and Population Review, among others. He is the author of many books.  Most recently, he co-authored Demography of Indonesia’s Ethnicity, published by the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies in 2015. From 2001 to 2014, Aris was a senior research fellow at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, Singapore.

David Coleman, a demographer, has been a Professor of Demography at Oxford University since 2002 and was the Reader in Demography between 1996-2002, and Lecturer in Demography since 1980. Between 1985 and 1987 he worked for the British government, as the Special Adviser to the Home Secretary, and then to the Ministers of Housing and of the Environment. Research interests include the comparative demographic trends in the industrial world; the future of fertility, the demographic consequences of migration and the demography of ethnic minorities. International collaborative work continues on these topics at the Vienna Institute of Demography. He has worked as a consultant for the Home Office, for the United Nations and for private business. He has published over 150 papers and eight books, including The State of Population Theory: Forward from Malthus (ed.with R.S. Schofield, 1986), The British Population: patterns, trends and processes (with J. Salt, 1992. Oxford University Press); International Migration: Regional Responses and Processes (ed. with M. Macura 1994); Europe’s Population in the 1990s (ed. 1996, Oxford University Press), Ethnicity in the 1991 Census. Volume 1: Demographic characteristics of ethnic minority populations, edited (with J. Salt), London, HMSO and Immigration to Denmark: national and international perspectives (with E. Wadensjo, 1999, Aarhus University Press).

Farhat Yusuf, an epidemiologist and demographer, has published extensively on various population and health related issues and has been a United Nations consultant in many Asian and African countries.  His research has appeared in reputable journals, such as Population Research and Policy Review, Journal of Biosocial Science, Medical Journal of Australia and Public Health. His most recent book, Methods of Demographic Analysis, was published by Springer in 2014.

This is an open call through 15 October 2017.  Papers will be published in the order they receive acceptance. For submissions, please contact Prof. Heili Pals (hpals@tamu.edu).
