Demographic trends in EU regions – EP briefing


All EU regions are affected by demographic impacts, such as the ageing of the population driven by longer life-spans and low levels of fertility, yet some – especially remote, rural and/or border regions that face massive depopulation – experience these impacts much more strongly than others.

This briefing published by the research service of the European Parliament, explores the demographics trends in Europe and its impacts in both rural and urban areas, including the migratory movements between European countries and from outside EU borders. The paper also lists the various EU funding programmes aimed to help EU regions address demographic challenges and the role of the European Parliament in strengthening regional cohesion.
