In this volume, scholars, policy-makers and women's health advocates suggest a new consensus on population policy directions for the 21st century, centred on health, women's empowerment, and human rights. They argue that public policy should assure the rights and well-being of people, rather than simply attempting to limit the ultimate size of the world's population.


Population Policies Reconsidered brings together a rare combination of scholars, feminists, social activists, and policy-makers across many disciplines to critically reexamine the scientific foundation of contemporary population policies, exploring dilemmas from the perspective of ethics, women's empowerment and health, and human rights.
