CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition


Five times a year, Population & Avenir publishes clear, high-quality information, analyses, reflections, and arguments illustrated with maps, charts, diagrams, and more. Members of the journal’s editorial board always work closely with authors to revise their submissions. The journal draws on expertise in the field of research for educational purposes in order to provide its readers with key elements for understanding demographic and territorial dynamics. Its detailed articles contribute to the debate on a wide range of issues relating to populations and territories.

Population & Avenir is published in A4 format, large enough for readers to be able to look at any infographics and their accompanying analyses at the same time.

Each issue of Population & Avenir also contains a teaching exercise that is relevant to current education programs. These exercises are aimed at professors of history, geography, economics, and social sciences, but also at pupils and students preparing for exams. They feature several illustrations and include an answer key.
