"This chapter focuses on the demographic changes experienced in Mexico during the past 50 years as outcomes of its population policies....Within the last 50 years, two very different conceptions of demographic growth and its relationship to development have prevailed, leading to divergent positions on population policy....The integration of population variables into social and economic programs has not been achieved. Consequently, population programs have become independent, pursuing specific fertility and demographic growth objectives as goals, rather than as mechanisms for the attainment of social and economic change."

"In this paper I discuss the case of the Indonesian transmigration program where a number of projects specifically for women have been implemented since the late 1970s and where, since the mid-1980s, more attention has been paid in mainstream planning to women, especially in their productive capacity. I consider the implications for women of the conceptual framework and assumptions made by the planners. I argue that in the process of planning, elements of the prevailing ideology of gender hierarchy are absorbed, reapplied, and reinforced in pursuit of officially defined goals and in the interest of greater administrative efficiency, and that merely incorporating women into such development schemes is not sufficient by itself to ensure that they will benefit."

60:30717 de Barbieri, Teresita. Gender and population policies: some reflections. Reproductive Health Matters, No. 1, May 1993. 85-92 pp. London, England. In Eng.
"The aim of this paper is to reflect on how a gender perspective might contribute to a greater understanding of population as an issue, to analyse population policies and the decline of fertility in Latin America, and propose some directions for the future....My hope is to stimulate broad-based and deeper reflection about sexuality, reproduction and the social division of labour and the way these are influenced by gender power." Family planning programs, sexuality, and having children are examined from this perspective.

"For most of human history, the politics of population has rested on the assumption that population size and growth are essential determinants of national power and economic strength....Today, population politics has been transformed as governments everywhere have come to see rapid population growth in third world countries as an obstacle to development and have laid aside the old beliefs. In a major shift of emphasis, the old politics of population has been replaced by the politics of family planning."

"In this contribution, first results are given of a survey initiated in 1992 by the Federal Institute for Population Research...on the acceptance of measures related to family policy. With this survey a total of 10,000 representatively selected German women and men aged 20 to 39 years were interviewed as to their opinions and attitudes with regard to family and children as well as with regard to measures related to family policy....This first results analysis is focussed on demonstrating the differences and common features in the opinions of the respondents from the former RFA and from the former GDR. The results indicate clear differences between the former two parts of Germany in the assessment of reasons for the decline of the birthrate, value orientation with regard to family and children as well as the assessment of the actual family policy adopted by the federal government and of individual measures related to family policy."

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...report focuses on changes in population policy and contraceptive use in Iran since the establishment of the first national family planning program in 1967." The author shows that following an initial stage of moderate growth, the program came to a virtual halt in 1979 with the Islamic Revolution. "In 1989, the alarming results of the 1986 census, which were well publicized in 1988, galvanized the government into creating another family planning program. The program has been growing in political, ideological and economic support ever since."

"An underlying hypothesis of this article is that the population policies of a country are not only a function of demographic phenomena, but are also the consequence of social, economic, and political conditions specific to the country. Population policies--and such shifts in policy as those noted above--are likely to be of paramount importance in determining governmental expenditures, programs, practices, and assistance, which in turn affect the well-being of individuals and influence demographic trends....This chapter examines trends, variations, and contradictions in government views and policies that are directed at influencing fertility, which since World War II has been a central concern and focus of most governments' interventions in the area of population....The perceptions and policies of governments toward fertility reported here are based on information from the Population Policy Data Bank, which is maintained by the Population Division of the Department of International Economic and Social Affairs (DIESA) of the United Nations."

This study, prepared as a doctoral dissertation at Cornell University, examines "the perceptions and attitudes of the religious, political, and health elites on family planning and population [in the Philippines]. An underlying assumption of the study is that success in formulating a national policy on fertility control will depend largely on the support it receives from these elites."

"The latest nationwide survey of Chinese fertility suggests that, after rising during the mid-1980s, fertility has fallen steadily since the late 1980s, reaching replacement level in 1992. Through a re-study of three villages in the northwestern province of Shaanxi, this article explores the politics and economics of this striking demographic development in a locality well known to the authors from previous research. Between 1988 and mid-1993, they find, village fertility fell to new lows due to increased emphasis on birth planning by leaders at all levels and, to a lesser extent, economic advance that reduced already very low childbearing aspirations. This microstudy of three ordinary Chinese villages provides dramatic testimony to the changes that can be wrought at the bottom of the administrative hierarchy when the top leadership decides that rapid population growth must be controlled."

"This chapter reviews the developments leading to the pivotal publication of Humanae Vitae and its relation to events outside the [Roman Catholic] Church in those early days of the global spread of the family planning movement. It then explores why the central authorities of Roman Catholicism did not actively pursue a goal of incorporating Church teaching into laws and policies of countries in which the Church was a significant presence and in multilateral organizations in which it has representation."

The author discusses the history of population policy in Mongolia, with a focus on motivations and consequences of the government's strong pronatalist ideology. "In spite of these policies, fertility began a sustained decline by the middle of the 1970s. This decline intensified during the 1980s and is likely to continue during the present decade, probably even more rapidly than in the past, since limitations on contraceptives and abortion have been removed....There is considerable apprehension concerning the substantial fertility decline and its eventual impact on population growth....Some are concerned that past interventions could be revitalized and future government family planning programs could be extremely limited."

In Eng.
"The first purpose of this study is to describe and to analyze the population policies regarding fertility and population growth implemented between the 1950s and 1989 [in Mongolia]. The emphasis is on analyzing such policies in relation to the demographic and socio-economic situation prevalent in the country during that period. The second objective is to analyze the recent process of fertility decline observed in the country. The emphasis is on explaining this trend within the context of the population policies implemented by the government during the past three decades and, at the same time, discussing some of its major policy implications."

"The central explanatory propositions of this article are that India's policy of fertility regulation and its success or failure have been deeply conditioned by two central realities of the Indian polity: (1) India's diversity and (2) India's federal democratic political system. The complex interactive relationship between these key dimensions of the Indian political organization has determined the country's performance not only in the area of family planning but in other areas as well." The authors explore interrelationships between fertility control policies and factors such as religion, ethnic and caste diversity, economic diversity, and the country's political system.

The author "analyses the Indian government's current [population control] policies from the point of view of their effect on Indian women. It shows that these policies, which in theory are meant to support development and solve the country's economic problems, in practice do not. Further, it shows why these policies have failed women in the past and will continue to fail them in the future. Finally, it puts forth alternatives for population and development policy and family planning services, as an integrated programme that would meet women's needs and achieve the government's stated aims at the same time."

The author examines the development of China's family planning policy. The analysis places "the one-child policy on the periphery of Chinese politics, not at the center, and [specifies] at the outset four basic aspects of China's political and institutional climate that have provided the structure and context for decisionmaking on population policy in the post-Mao era. With that context in mind, the evolution of the one-child policy is reviewed, showing how changes in this policy sector have been the direct byproducts of broader developments in Chinese politics, not merely a response to popular resistance."

"This report has given some idea of the wide-ranging discussions at the Second National Immigration Outlook Conference [held in Sydney, Australia, in 1993], and of the way they reflect vital political, economic, and social issues in a country built upon mass immigration. The strains of globalization, geopolitical reorientation, and economic restructuring are having decisive effects on policies of immigration and multiculturalism. The consequences of such changes are difficult to predict, but in the authors' opinion they could lead to the breakdown of the 'Australian model' which has been remarkably successful in incorporating very large numbers of newcomers from varied backgrounds. The result might be considerable hardship and social tension."

The author analyzes "the various arguments that can be advanced for imposing fees on immigrants to optimize...resident gains....This article discusses cost recovery and emphasizes the costs of multiculturalism as a possible basis for fees. It then analyzes the effects of inelastic immigrant supplies in providing an optimal tariff motivation for monopsonistically restricting labor flows and deals with the second-best problem of devising an optimal fee policy to accompany a possibly suboptimal immigration quota. Next, attention turns to the role of priceable externalities. Externalities which are expensive to price because of transactions costs are analyzed. Finally, along with summarization of major conclusions, the author considers if, even in the economic interests of existing residents, entry rights should be sold."

Distributed by Brookings Institution, 1775 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington, D.C. 20036-2188. In Eng.
The author makes the case that international migration is one of the top policy problems for European governments in the 1990s due to such factors as the war in former Yugoslavia, the break-up of the Soviet Union, increases in clandestine migration, and the rise in inter-ethnic tensions. "Governments' attempts to respond to new migration pressures while simultaneously striving to abolish internal border controls have brought European migration policies to a critical crossroads. Decisions taken now will have profound economic, social and political implications for Europe in the years and decades to come. This book tackles head-on some of the major policy challenges faced today: immigrant integration, immigration controls, proposals to alleviate the root-causes of migration, and refugee and asylum policies. The author argues that only when policy-makers recognize the reality of migration as a continuing process can more effective and sustainable policies begin to be developed."
