Russia's Peacetime Demographic Crisis

Online registration for this event is closed. Walk-in registrations will be accepted.

Since the end of the Communist era, Russia's population has plunged by almost 7 million people--the greatest drop anywhere since Mao's Great Leap Forward. The country has recorded three deaths for every birth, public health is in disarray, and the education system is failing. Adding to these existing demographic challenges, Russia is set to age profoundly in the decades ahead. What accounts for Russia's troubles, which are so unusual for an urbanized, literate society? Can government policies effectively redress these issues, and how will they affect Moscow's behavior on the world stage? Nicholas Eberstadt, AEI's Henry Wendt Scholar in Political Economy, will present an overview of his timely new book on the subject, Russia's Peacetime Demographic Crisis, followed by an expert panel discussion on the implications for Russia in the coming years.
