Stockholm University is pleased to be hosting the 25th Annual Population Postgraduate Conference, May 31 - June 2, 2017.
Organized by PhD students for PhD students, PopFest is an annual Population Studies conference with the aim to bring together researchers from different Social Science disciplines such as Demography, Human Geography, Urban and Landscape Planning, Sociology, Social Anthropology, Social Statistics, Politics and other related fields.
