Analysing human development from a demographic, geopolitical and social dynamics point of view

Understanding the many aspects that shape the way our society changes and evolves is essential to respond to the many demographic, migrational, educational, social and human challenges we must confront.

As society faces problems related to future population decline, depletion of the planet’s natural resources, a process of mass migration from places affected by various circustances to more favoured and depopulated areas, etc., we are faced with the need to assess and work on multiple dynamics at the same time, helping to develop policies and support measures for the entire population to access a decent standard of living with opportunities for development.

At the IDHUS Institute, we work to improve understanding of the forces and processes that shape our world in all aspects that affect the way we live in society. Our mission is to shed light on the complex interactions between demography, human development, the need for sustainable use of the Earth’s resources, and the dynamics of global population change.
