IUSSP-Mattei Dogan Foundation Award for Comparative Research in Demography

by Public Health Update


The International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP) and the Mattei Dogan Foundation share a common objective: to promote interdisciplinary and comparative international work in the social sciences. In 2004, the Mattei Dogan Foundation and the IUSSP came to an agreement to offer an Award for Comparative Research in Demography.

The award honours a scientist of high international renown for the contribution of his or her work to the development of studies of population that draw on perspectives of different disciplines and for the importance that this work has accorded to international comparisons. The award is given to a scholar in mid-career to honour work already completed but also to encourage active researchers to continue their research. The Award carries a $3,500 USD prize and is granted every four years at the IUSSP International Population Conference, where the Awardee is invited to give a lecture on a subject of his or her choice.

The 2017 award was presented to Anne Gauthier during the 28th International Population Conference in Cape Town, South Africa.  Previous awardees were Gunnar Andersson (2013), Wolfgang Lutz (2009), and Vladimir Shkolnikov (2005) (see below).
