Population, Economics and Development

The course aims to give students a global view on the interaction between demography, the studies of demographic dynamics and population issues. I am in charge of the lectures corresponding to the module Fertility, Economics and Public policies. This module intends to get students acquainted with the contributions made by Economics in order to understand fertility decisions, analyzing them in depth and in relation to other disciplines. The recent evolution of fertility in Latin America and Uruguay is also discussed in this module.
