Ten years ago, demography was hardly on the radar screen of policymakers. Today, it’s a part of almost every discussion of America’s long-term fiscal, economic, or foreign policy direction. With the world’s population hitting 7 billion last year, and headed for 10 billion in the next century, it is crucial to assess the impact of global population trends on international security and national politics.

Population change is, however, more complex than simply a rise in the total number of people. The distribution of people – where the growth will occur, what age groups will dominate, how various ethnic and religious groups are likely to change – is even more crucial. Shifts in aging, ethnic, and religious profiles will shape national elections, state stability, and economic policies in the rich and developing world alike.
