Dear Reader,

Welcome! I am Professor Bong Joo Lee, Project Director of Demographic Transition and Strategies for Future Society at Seoul National University in South Korea. Our research team is conducting an interdisciplinary research project regarding population dynamics with a plan to establish a Korean population center to share research results globally.

Our work is part of the 10-10 Project, an academic project in which the Department of Social Welfare and the Department of Sociology of Seoul National University research population change and social policy. This project includes data archiving (especially collecting country-level indicators related to the population in Asia and collecting survey data), international symposiums, and academic exchange programs.

Our ultimate goal is to centralize the team’s position as an Asian hub for disseminating innovative research to a wider global audience and to provide guidelines for social policy pertaining to the issue of dynamic population change.

We are so proud to share the work that we have done so far, as well as our upcoming plans.

Many Asian countries are experiencing rapid shifts in their demographic structures, which require proper policy interventions. However, there has been a huge lack of data that could provide both information and insight into population change in these countries. To fill this gap, the SNUPRC research team has been working on a data archival project on population change in eight Asian countries: Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and Malaysia. Our survey was primarily conducted on the public’s attitudes toward and awareness of: family, marriage, childbirth, childrearing, value, family norms, subjective well-being, quality of life, work, and life.

Prior to the systematic data archiving, we would love to start sharing our survey results through infographics that are interesting and also insightful. You can find them

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Annual “Demographic Changes and Social Policies” International Symposium

Last winter, we held a webinar on the topic of " Population Dynamics and Social Policy" Ten distinguished scholars from Asia, Europe, and North America participated in the webinar and presented their research on aging society, elderly issues, family, marriage, and child birth. There were also two panel discussion sessions in which the experts in demography and social policy shared their opinions on proper policy interventions.

Although the symposium was conducted in online formats last year due to the pandemic, more than a hundred students, faculty, and citizens joined our webinar.

In January 2021, we also held a distinguished lecture series to understand the universal issue and societal trend of low birth rates and population aging, which allowed students to experience an international academic environment.

Prof. Yu Xie (Princeton University) and Prof. Mary C. Brinton (Harvard University) were invited to give presentations on the family transition in China and the birth dearth in postindustrial societies. More than 60 students joined each of the lectures and actively participated in the debate.
