Pronatalist policies, migration policies, and policies affecting labor force participation are examined for their potential impact on future trends of below-replacement fertility and demographic aging in developed countries. The author concludes that "noncoercive pronatalist policy measures consisting of social benefits, plus a liberal immigration policy, plus policies aiming at the growth of participation rates of women and of the elderly will be needed to face the challenge of the present demographic trends of the advanced societies."

"The article offers an interpretive synthesis of recent scholarship on family law and government regulation of the family [in the United States]. It traces changes in family law from the colonial era to the present and concludes with an analysis of family law as a discourse involving four broad themes: the law's social functions; the social values upheld by law; the relative responsibility of private individuals and the larger society for enforcing values; and the ways in which the law intervenes in family affairs."

England. In Eng.
Population policies in Asia are discussed, with a focus on their effect on fertility rates and their interrelationship with development planning. In considering the future impact of Asian population policies, the author concludes that socioeconomic development will result in lower birth rates and notes the importance of access to family planning services and careful allocation of resources in achieving this goal. The protection of individual rights and improvements in women's status are also linked to successful policy outcomes.

This is a collection of papers on population policies and planning around the world. "These chapters on population policy seek answers to some questions: What are some of the national policy priorities? How are they implemented? How successful have they been? What is the role of international agencies in the implementation of population policy? What are some of the legal and ethical issues surrounding the implementation of population policies?" Special focus is on the relationship between development planning and population policies in developing countries and on the role of developed nations in funding international population programs.

Praeger: New York, New York/London, England. In Eng.
The activities of the World Bank and their impact on population policies in developing countries are examined. Particular attention is given to regional, sectoral, and country-level economic studies; policy dialogue with government officials; lending; research on the links between population growth and development; and cooperation in international efforts concerning population issues. "This paper will discuss the role of each of these activities in the Bank's efforts to highlight and give priority to population issues and to help member countries develop national population policies. It will review which activities have had the greatest impact on promoting and facilitating policy development and provide examples of countries where the Bank's influence has been most evident."

Population policy: contemporary issues, edited by Godfrey Roberts.
1990. 21-37 pp. Praeger: New York, New York/London, England. In Eng.
"Dozens of countries across the world have established programs to control population growth....The methods used include voluntary family planning services; education and persuasion; financial incentives and disincentives; pressures on individuals, couples, or communities; and forced sterilization or abortion. This chapter addresses the ethics of these deliberate attempts to modify human fertility." The author concludes that "three steps can be taken to develop a workable ethics of population control. One is for countries using heavy pressures or coercion to offer an explicit ethical rationale for their practices....A second helpful step would be for donor agencies, particularly the World Bank and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), to issue ethical guidelines for work in the family planning programs they help to finance....Third, it is now time for an international code of ethics covering the implementation of population programs. Its standards should be drafted by a body that is not subject to pressures from countries with a record of ethical abuses or international donors who support their programs."

The replacement of Singapore's birth limitation policy with a pronatalist policy in 1983 is described. Main features of the policy include the use of fertility incentives for women of higher educational status, a sterilization cash incentive program for women of lower socioeconomic and educational status, and government-sponsored matchmaking services to encourage higher rates of marriage among university graduates. The controversies surrounding these programs are discussed, and the failure of the policy to significantly increase the birth rate is analyzed.

Life-table analysis indicates that fewer than 9 percent of Korean women would accept the certificate within a six-year period after their first birth. In the meantime, a second child would be born to 60 percent of the women. Among eight factors considered, three--place of residence, occupation of husband, and sex of the living child--significantly affected the rate of acceptance of the certificate, according to the hazards model."

They conclude that "family planning has been so effective in Singapore that a risk exists of there being too few young people to sustain the country's economy in the twenty-first century. Relaxation of birth control policies and immigration laws offers hope that this problem will be averted."

"The differences between management and structural emigration policies are illustrated....The major, but not exclusive concern in this chapter will be with 'structural' emigration policies. The main purpose is to present a broad review of policy choices made by labour-exporting countries of the Arab world and to illustrate the gap between policy articulation and policy implementation. The second half of the chapter presents detailed and contrasting case studies of labour emigration policy: Algeria and Jordan."
