The implications for poor people in developing countries of two objectives of current population policies are assessed, namely, the negative externalities of rapid population growth and the effects on income distribution. The authors conclude that "the implications of the two arguments for policy are the same--both require behavioral change by the poor. Their behavior is most likely to change if the change improves their welfare--which should therefore be the focus of population programs."

In Fre.
The impact of recent legislation on demographic behavior in France is examined, including laws affecting contraception, abortion, the legitimization of children, marriage, divorce, and parental authority. The focus is on how such laws affect demographic behavior in an era of increasing focus on individualism and individual rights. The author concludes that legislation can extend the options open to individuals, but its effectiveness depends on how far it conforms to existing social trends and preferences.

"In my paper on population-relevant policies before and after the unification of Germany I want to discuss a newly emerging issue in developed countries. Which policies have and will affect demographic trends, namely low fertility and resulting aging and population decline? And what can or should be done politically to meet these challenges? I believe that the example of the two Germanies that are now united provide a particularly timely example to study the possible political strategies."

The authors discuss population and development planning in Thailand. "After describing how, within one or two generations, parents' attitudes towards child-bearing and child-rearing have changed almost completely: from desiring a high quantity of children to desiring a high quality of children, [the article] explains why issues such as population ageing and labour shortages cannot be addressed by reversing current fertility trends. It concludes that fertility in the long-term is unlikely to fall below the replacement level, unless there is a substantial change in the country's social and cultural context."

M.2. Measures Affecting Fertility

Government policies aimed at directly influencing fertility and nuptiality, and policies with an indirect effect on fertility such as family allowances, pregnancy and maternity benefits, infant welfare measures, and government regulation of fertility controls, including abortion.

"This paper uses the proportional hazards model to assess the effect of the Chinese one-child policy on second and third births. The differential effects of the policy between the urban and rural areas and by the sex of previous children are highlighted. First, the urban-rural differentials have increased much after the policy, suggesting a more rapid increase in the costs of children and stricter government controls in the urban areas. Second, the sex of children has become a more important factor after the policy. The considerably higher risks to a subsequent birth among sonless families indicate the persistent strong son preferences among Chinese parents, especially in less developed areas."

"This article presents a global overview of fertility policies according to the experience of both developed and developing countries. For each...grouping, the author analyses successively the government's perceptions of their fertility levels and the adopted measures to respond to these issues. In particular, the analysis examines the adoption of fertility targets, measures concerning the access to modern fertility regulation methods, the legislation on the minimum age at marriage, measures related to the promotion of the condition and status of women, and the diverse schemes on incentives and disincentives."

"This research analyzes how type of household registration, which reflects the degree of government control, affects compliance with China's 'one child' policy for women at risk during the first decade of implementation. Although socioeconomic and cultural factors have significant effects on four fertility events after first live birth, household registration type is the most important. Furthermore, household registration type interacts with urbanization in such a way that the modernization influence associated with urbanization is more evident for women under less government control. The notable success of China's family planning program is linked to its unique system of government control."

"Using data from the Two-Per-Thousand National Fertility Survey, this research analyzes how son preference...affects compliance with China's one child population policy for women at risk during the period of 1979 to 1988. Four events after the first live birth are used to evaluate compliance with the policy: (1) certificate acceptance (an indicator of future fertility intention); (2) the use of contraceptives (an indicator of intention to prevent a subsequent pregnancy); (3) the occurrence of a pregnancy subsequent to the first live birth (a potential violation of the one child policy); and (4) among those pregnant, the likelihood of an abortion (an indicator of compliance by preventing a second live birth). It is found that son preference is still prevalent in China. Although the effect of son preference is not the most important, urbanization, education, and occupation have not fundamentally changed its influence on women's compliance. In addition, the effect of son preference on the compliance is not altered by government control."

The programme is totally voluntary and the government is firmly opposed to coercion or pressure on couples to accept contraception. As a strategy, the programme has integrated health and [family planning] while various ministries have attempted to encourage the acceptance of low-fertility behaviour through socio-economic incentives and educational motivation programmes."

As part of that examination, we will critically review the major features of current absorption policies, such as the policy of 'direct absorption', the 'basket of absorption services' provided as a right to new immigrants, and immigration-related housing policies. In addition, we will explore the effects of employment policy on the new immigrant population."

Part I also attempts to assess empirically the success of migration control by drawing on data on Romanian asylum seekers in Austria, Hungary and Germany in the period between 1989 and 1992....Part II addresses the question of whether this success can be regarded as such within a longer term perspective. It is based on a theoretical elaboration on the underlying causes and influencing factors of East-West migration."

This paper explores the economic and political forces that prevented restrictive legislation on immigration being adopted in the United States between 1897 and 1921. The author notes that economic recessions and resulting unemployment created pressure for restrictive legislation, but that the political clout of immigrants was enhanced by their concentration in major cities. After 1910, the dilution of immigrant flows and the negative impact of migrants on native wages were factors in the passage of legislation restricting immigration.

"This article offers an analysis of Danish migration policy from 1960-90. The framework employed is the Swedish sociologist Thomas Hammar's concentric 'gate' model and his concept of 'denizens'. Non-Danish citizens' access to Danish society is regulated by 'gates' and security and rights increase in proportion with the number of 'gates' passed, culminating in naturalisation and full social, legal and political rights. After an initial profile of the various groups of foreigners living in Denmark, I discuss the development of policy measures regulating immigration with particular reference to the 'Law for Foreigners'. Finally I turn to the critical issue of policy on denizens."

"The objective of our paper is to show why migration will be one of the most important subjects in the Europe of the next century. We will provide some evidence that (1) immigration flows from the outside into the EC will increase, (2) migration flows within the EC will decrease, (3) immigration from the outside is likely to be beneficial for the EC, (4) the EC needs a common immigration policy to collect the benefits from migration, and (5) in either case, there is a need for migration policy which should incorporate the interests of emigration and immigration countries. With this in mind, we will concentrate on economically motivated migration...."

The author examines the development of a common migration policy among the member countries of the European Community. Specifically, he "discusses the international treaties relevant for a European immigration policy which have been decided upon so far and tries to evaluate the consequences and the reasoning of the recent developments." The discussion is developed in the light of increasing pressure from migrants wishing to enter the Community.

The author describes France's development of an immigration policy from the late 1930s to the present, focusing on policies developed behind the scenes rather than those that were legislated openly. He considers such issues as the initial welcome extended to foreigners, the developing search for a way to control the number of immigrants, the effort to reduce illegal immigration, the defense of public order, the protection of the rights of immigrants, naturalization policy, and the provision of social services to immigrants. He also examines problems associated with policy implementation, particularly since 1974.

"[South] Korea's reverse brain drain (RBD) has been an organized government effort, rather than a spontaneous social phenomenon....Particular features of Korea's RBD policies are the creation of a conducive domestic environment...and importantly, the empowerment of returnees (via, i.e., exceptionally good material benefits, guarantees of research autonomy)....Korea's future RBD, however, needs to pay closer attention to the following four problems: research autonomy; equality issues; skill-based repatriation of technicians and engineers rather than Ph.D.'s; and subsidies to small and medium industry for RBD."
