About this book

This book provides a contemporary regional science perspective on population change, and its socio-economic consequences, in the Asia–Pacific region. The authors, experts in the field of population studies, provide unique viewpoints from the perspective of regional science, drawing together many different disciplines with the common focus on understanding how regional dynamics impacts on today’s globalized world.
The topics addressed in this book include: broad demographic trends across the Asia-Pacific region, assessment of population decline and spatial distribution using cases from Japan, Australia, Colombia and Chile; migration and development in Oceania, the Pacific and Asia; and the impacts of population ageing in China, India, Thailand and across Asia.
This book will appeal especially to readers who seek an understanding of population change and dynamics across the Asia–Pacific region, with a specific focus on regional dynamics.
