How Are Today’s Global Demographic Trends Shaping Our World?

Live in Washington: Expert panel on effects of international migration, economic, and religious patterns

  • July 12, 2016
  • 4:30 - 5:30 PM


The world is more connected today than ever before. Changing migration patterns, the rise of the middle class, and evolving religious attitudes are just some of the issues that transcend national borders and affect us all. How will this shape our future?

Join an expert panel on Tuesday, July 12, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Pew’s Washington offices for a discussion of some of today’s key global demographic trends. Three contributors to our new publication, Trend, will discuss the data behind these shifts and their policy implications.

A reception will follow the discussion, and attendees will receive complimentary copies of Trend.

Get expert insights on:

  • How growing migration is changing the world.
  • How a global middle class could save the economy.
  • What expanding African religion means for faith worldwide.
