Objective

The course will present the demographic and migratory transitions, their impacts on resources and the mutations in the understanding and management of anthropogenic pressure.

Content

Part 1: The main demographic challenges at different geographical levels

Settlement inequalities
Demographic transition
Migration transition



An important component of the teaching is to show that the concept of gender is a major analytical tool to understand the state and demographic evolution - but not only - of the societies in which we live, but also a fundamental tool of struggle and denaturalization to stimulate socio-political and cultural changes which, by reducing the inequalities of power relations, have, among other things, effects on fertility.


Part 2: The anthropogenic pressure

Population and resources: from predation to durability / decreasing expectations

Evaluation

1 written control (individual)/1 practical control (by groups)
