This publication contains papers presented at the Cairo Demographic Centre's 1988 annual seminar, the forum at which the Centre's research is presented and discussed. "This volume includes 29 papers, organized into seven sessions. Two sessions were exclusively devoted to the demography of Egypt and one session each to Arab, African, Asian and Chinese demography, while general issues were presented and discussed in yet another session." The topics discussed in the general issues section include the applicability of the principal components model to cohort age-specific fertility rates using Australian data; two papers on Egypt concerning women's status and fertility, and estimates of total fertility; and the factors that contribute to fertility change.

This document contains the ceremonial speeches presented in November 1990 at a seminar on perspectives in demographic behaviour, which was held to mark the official opening of the Graduate School of Research in Demography at the University of Amsterdam, Netherlands. Two substantive papers are included. The first, by James T. Fawcett, has a global scope and covers the contributions of psychology to demography over the past 20 years, giving emphasis to studies on the motivations behind fertility and migration decision-making. In the second paper, Siv Gustafsson discusses the demographic situation and feminism in Sweden in the 1930s and how policies ultimately turned to favor women's emancipation.
